What's outside


I seem to have a ‘blonde’ deryn y to in the garden lately - it’s much paler than all the usual ‘brunettes’!
I’ve never seen another one this colour before - how common is it, I wonder? Any ideas @Cetra?

I’ve also had this handsome young dudwy visit a couple of times


I love Skomer!

I came across a couple of those in my garden in Llandysul a couple of years ago - fascinating things! Wish I’d seen the moths though!


lindys gwalch-wyfynod helyglys - I’ve had the green version in my garden this year, first time I’ve ever seen the green type!


and so pretty in any language


Not outside but probably should be…

Sioncyn y gwair?
Ceiliog y Rhedyn

I think it’s actually a cricket not a grasshopper but they have cuter names

Criciedyn or cricsyn which the dictionaries give me is less endearing :wink:
