Second Brood

The local kingfishers have appeared on the Taff through Taffs Well with there second brood of the year. The first brood was back in mid June. Always a good stretch of the river to watch the fledged young when water levels are low. Thankfully they're not very photogenic from the other side of the river bank thus saving you all from an inundation of kingfisher pictures. Phew.

Fresh otter spraint was being washed way in the rain at both the Thermal Well culvert and the slipway. The boulder revetment at the latter regularly attracts a good sized pile of spraint and is one of the best otter 'seats' I know of.
