Wildlife photography and squirrels by Duncan
Duncan’s wildlife photography
Some of Duncan’s wildlife photography can be seen here, taken on our island or just offshore.
The Apartment at Coed y Berclas is a favourite of Rachel and Duncan who come to relax in the magnificent view.
Anglesey boat trip
Their holiday weather was beautiful and, whilst travelling around Anglesey, took a boat trip along the Menai Strait to Penmon. They were lucky to see porpoises playing around the boat – and captured some shots to add to Duncan’s wildlife collection.
Dwynwen, Llanddwyn, Squirrels, My Art
Our guests also visited Llanddwyn; three miles of beautiful sandy beach fringed by woodland. A walk along the sand leads you to Ynys Llanddwyn (Dwynwen’s Isle). Dwynwen lived on the island in Celtic times. She is still the patron saint of lovers in Wales and her small chapel is a place of pilgrimage.
As a Textile Artist, some of my work has involved research into Celtic history and mythology. The Mabinogion character Branwen features in two of my works and Llanddwyn has a particular interest for me. Branwen 1 and Branwen 2
Whilst walking through the woodland, our guests were lucky enough to see one of Anglesey’s red squirrels and Duncan took this lovely photograph. Grey squirrels have been removed and the red squirrel numbers have consolidated because Anglesey is an island. They are, after all, our native wildlife species so it is good to see them taking back their woodland territory.
The Hidden gardens
The Hidden Gardens at Plas Cadnant are about two miles from Coed y Berclas. Anthony and his partner have lovingly restored the original gardens over the past twenty years. Our Guests described the gardens as ‘a sheer delight’ photographing the calm pool and topiary as a reminder.
We always look forward to welcoming returning guests to Coed y Berclas!
