Aberystwyth Uni open day
Nothing particularly natural about the open day itself, but driving there, some four hours, and back, five hours due to a crash on the main road, we drove through some truly lovely scenery and with it came some smashing views of birds. In particular on the way back we saw well over 100 red kites, some really close to the car. At one point, there were around 30 circling over one small area of forestry. Other birds we saw included buzzards quite close and kestrels, as well as a few jays flying over the motorway, as you regularly see during long journeys.
