Minsmere

Friday 22nd April

We left the Vulcan Arms early, arriving at Minsmere just after 8am. It was overcast and very cold but we saw over 50 species of bird during the day. We had to retire to the RSPB cafe a few times to warm up though! We left at 3.30pm to return to Joy and David's house.

Saturday 23rd April

We packed up Morag and followed Joy and David to Bentwaters air base for an hour at a fun agility group. The weather was interesting - hail rain and sunshine alternately!
We said our goodbyes and left Joy and David shortly after midday to make our way home. We had a couple of stops, first at Anglesey Abbey for lunch and secondly  near the Welford arm of the GUC to give Button a walk. We arrived home a little after 6pm.
