We briefly had a red kite in for rehabilitation due to it being found in the river Ystwyth by Mr Malcom Slater. Apart from its cold ducking, the kite was otherwise in good health so it was tagged and released back into the wild the following day.
It was with great relief this morning that I turned on a tap and at last saw water flowing from its spout! We've been without running water for 4 long days and that has meant many many journeys carrying water.
Ty Meri, my self catering bungalow was vacant so treks across the field with kettles etc were the order of the day. Temperatures have now risen enough to defrost the water supply pipe - the next job will be to discover where, in its 400m length, it became frozen!
It's amazing how many pro photographers we see here now, with the latest to get in touch being from Sweden.
