Last night's snowfall

A couple of inches of powdery snow fell last night over much of Swansea and parts of Neath, though once again the milder western end of the Gower peninsula and the Burry Inlet were hardly affected as shown below:

View from Cefn Bryn looking towards the snow-free Rhossili Down (193m) and Llanmadoc Hill (186m).

View from Dalton's Point marsh looking up the Loughor valley with Graig Fawr (276m) in the background

View across Oxwich beach towards Cefn Bryn (186m)

It all looks very picturesque Barry - I'm looking forward to a full day on Gower tomorrow with our group - my first visit of the year. The plan is to start at Oxwich, then Rhosilli. After lunch at Penclawdd and finish at Llanrhidian for the roost. Will keep you updated of anything that might be of interest.

Hi Neil - good luck, though could be the marsh will be frozen if we have another cold one. 2 G.N.Divers, 2 R.B.Mergs and 8 G.C.Grebe in the bay today.
