Skomer-Puffin

A Trip to Skomer Island.

To see the puffins with Rachel Mullet of Pembrokeshire Moments. Skomer Island is my most favourite place to be in the summer months when the puffins come back to breed. They arrive sometime in April and leave from mid July onwards. Outside of these times there’s still a lot to see on the island with […]

Skokholm-Bird-Observatory

Pembrokeshire Moments’ Rachel visits Skokholm.

This holiday was a pilgrimage for me as my father was on Skokholm Island when war was declared. As a lad he regularly went over to help Ronald Lockley who farmed the island so I couldn’t wait to see where he’d spent so much of his time. Ronald was the first person to record the […]

Sea Trust, Goodwick – Porpoise, dolphin and whale conservation in Wales. As someone who spent most of their teens involved in conservation work (many years ago) it is wonderful to see the opportunities that young people have nowadays to pursue a career in wildlife and environmental issues.

The People's Orchard

Apples and Bees.

The People’s Orchard. I am probably revealing my ignorance here, but until I met Nia Siggins and Sophie Jenkins from the Big Lottery Funded People’s Orchard, I had no idea that there are solitary bees. What’s more they are better pollinators than the bees that live in colonies, because they are messy. They dive in, get […]

From Neyland

Neyland.

Brunel’s railway town  – now a marina. Isambard Kingdom Brunel chose Neyland as the terminus for his South Wales Railway, but this was transferred to Fishguard in 1906, which led to the decline of this town on the tributary stream of the Cleddau opposite Pembroke Dock. Neyland continued as a railway working centre and had […]

Wild Pembrokeshire.

January in Pembrokeshire is generally cold, wet and windy, providing little incentive to venture outside away from the warmth and comfort of the home and its well-stocked larders. Those who work on the land have little choice but to don their winter gear and get on with it, but, when they do, they will be […]

Emanuel not impressed

Living with Cats.

It was August 2017 when I set off for the animal rescue centre and came away with Emmanuel. I had intended to bring home a kitten or two, but you know cats. Emmanuel, enormous , jet black, with golden eyes , just stole our hearts. In a room full of prowling moggies, one of whom […]
