Dads Go to Iceland

This is why dads go to Iceland.Or maybe Minehead for an Iceland.Checked out the small pool opposite tescos first but no sign there.Did have a Perergrine circling high above.Couldnt be bothered to go into tescos for a loaf of bread to entice the gull in so i grabbed myslef a big mac meal and a couple of hamburgers for the gull.Must remember to take the gerkins out next time as the gull didnt like them.After i started feeding the gulls the finest food from Mc Donalds it was sometimes to close to get it all in the frame.Also here was a Pied Wagtail with 3 coloured rings.Red over Grey on left leg and white on right.

Glamorgans Aberthaw Power Station in the distance.
