Bosherston to Broad Haven

The forecast for last Thursday 7th June was pretty dreadful so it was afternoon by the time we made our way to Bosherston Pools on the South Pembrokeshire coast. By then it had brightened up enough to walk from the Pools to the beach at Broad Haven, admiring the famous lily ponds on the way. This is a good spot for Otter early mornings, so we were surprised to see a pair in the middle of the day with plenty of people around.
With my back calling for respite I am sometimes temped to leave the camera behind when heading for the beach, but with Chough a possibility on this coast I kept it with me. Sure enough a pair were feeding among the wildflowers around Broad Haven. Early Purple, Spotted and Pyramidal Orchids were all present, and a Painted Lady added yet more colour. Manx Shearwaters whisked past offshore making for a pretty rewarding visit.
