Frosty Robin:

A robin stands upright on top of a small pile of frost covered, brown leaves, it's red breast highlighted in the morning sun. In the background, long green stems of grass are encrusted in frost. In the foreground a patch of sand with fallen leaves is also covered in a heavy frost
Roe Deer:

Two roe deer stand alert on a hillside covered in grass, gorse and brown bracken. They stand side on to the camera, facing one another. Both have red/brown fur, darker on the back and lightening to white at their throat, bellies and bottoms. Faint lighter coloured spots can just be seen on their flanks. The left hand deer is smaller than the other.
Split tree:

An old tree stands on an otherwise hill top, with more hills rising behind it.  The tree is dramatically split almost entirely down the centre with the heart of the tree visible on both sides, although currently bare of any leaves, both halves have a dense canopy of branches.
View from The Bro Stone:

A large, irregular shaped stone stands vertically, the word "bro" can just be seen carved into it's rear face. A low stone wall forms a circle around it and the ground drops sharply away in front of it with the tops of conifer trees visible. further ahead, and below, green farmland is punctured by patches of leafless woodland and bounded by the M4 motorway, where a few vehicles can be seen. There is then a large rectangular reservoir, it's still water reflecting the image of electricity pylons.  Further on a band of rough shrub-land leads to grass covered sand dunes at the edge of a still blue sea

A tree on the shore, when the small lake has been filled with more rain, the tree is flooded. I expect there is a natural in flow from underground.
The same tree when the small lake is a lot fuller. Fuller? More water in it.

A linocut sampler in portrait format.  Letters of the Welsh alphabet are framed within different sized squares and patterned variously with abstract images, landscapes, cross-hatching, and a variety of other textures.
A black and white linocut seascape.  The sea is heavily patterned with broad flowing shapes to indicate a swell.  In the distance it breaks upon a black headland; a passage is seen between the headland and a skerry.  The sky is black and fiercely cut.

That weird time when Prince Charles (overdressed in naval uniform) grew a beard. It looks like Darwin Hinds (wearing a grey suit and his mayoral chain) bends in conspiratorially and tells him quietly, "Your Highness, this is just a phase and in the future nobody will remember this. Instead, they will insist your second-born looks like the stable lad."

North #Wales market town at centre of royal claim over '#ManorialRights' to its minerals

Residents of #Pwllheli receive letters saying Crown Estate wants to register ownership of the minerals beneath their homes

Dean Kirby
Thursday 04 February 2016

“It is over 600 years since Pwllheli in North Wales was given its charter by Edward, the Black Prince.

“But now the ancient market town is at the centre of a #Royal claim over the 'manorial rights' to the ground on which its foundations are built. Around 1,300 homeowners in Pwllheli and nearby Morfa Nefyn have been sent letters saying the Crown Estate wants to register ownership of mines and minerals beneath their houses.

“The estate, which manages sovereign land, says it has owned rights over the minerals for many centuries and is now having to register its ownership after protection over these rights was withdrawn under new land registration laws.

“But the letters sent out by the Land Registry notifying residents of the claim have sparked 'worry and alarm' according to the town’s MP, who says the Crown Estate’s bid mirrors the 'grasping, unprincipled landlordism' that has bedevilled Wales in the past.

“The row comes two years after residents in Anglesey and the Arfon area of Gwynedd pledged to challenge similar notices sent out on behalf of the Crown Estate claiming ownership over ancient rights to minerals and mining.

“Liz Saville Roberts, Plaid Cymru MP for Dwyfor Meirionnydd, which includes Pwllheli, said: 'This has alarmed my constituents and has been the cause of great worry for local people

“'Staking claim to mining and mineral rights reeks of the 19th century, not the 21st century. There is no place for this kind of approach today.'

“Mike Parry, a town councillor in Pwllheli, said: 'These letters are worrying for people, especially the elderly, who are concerned about what will happen to their homes.'

“The Crown Estate is an independent commercial business, with a history dating back to 1066. It has been tasked by Parliament since 1760 with managing the sovereign’s land.

“Over the last 10 years it has returned a £2.3bn profit to the Treasury. Its portfolio includes Regent Street and much of St James’s in London – and the entire UK seabed.

“Homeowners in Pwllheli have been told they can challenge the claim, but must provide evidence that they are entitled to whatever minerals might lie beneath their homes.

“The minerals, if they exist at all, might include deposits of sand, rock or even quartz. But they would not include coal, oil, gas, silver or gold, which are covered by other legislation.

“A spokeswoman for the Crown Estate said: 'Along with many other landowners, the Crown Estate is in the process of registering historical mineral rights with the Land Registry.

“'These claims are not new and we would like to reassure local residents that the registration process is in no way an indication of our intent to begin mining, which in any event would require planning permission and the surface owner’s consent.'"

Female Kingfisher:

A small, brightly coloured, bird is perched on a moss covered stick, which curves over a pond, in front of a reed bed. The bird has a bright orange underside, feet, patch behind it's eye and lower bill (which is how you can tell it's female). The rest of it is mostly an electric blue colour with white speckles on it's head and wings and a white flash across it's neck. It is holding a small fish in it's beak.
Close up of a Robin:

A profile view of a bird with chestnut brown head and wings, bright red breast and throat and grey fringes separating the red and brown areas. It has a dark black eye and a black small, pointed beak
Jay:

A large bird stands on a wooden fence rail, it has pale pink plumage, a black tail and white rump. Its head has a pale crown with black streaks, and black facial markings and bill. Its wings are black and white with a panel of distinctive electric-blue feathers. It is holding a peanut in it's beak
Grey Squirrel:

A squirrel sits on it's haunches on an old wooden fence post, in front of bushes and trees. It is mostly a silvery grey colour, with white belly, reddish brown head and face with a big bushy tail  which is a mixture of all three colours. It's front paws are held together in front of it.

We all have different ways of coping with grief. One of my coping mechanisms is to create something new. My new project is the life story of my 3 x great grandmother, Mary Hopkin. To tell her story, and the story of her relatives and village, I’ve stepped into her shoes and will follow her footsteps as a thirty-year-old single mother in 1848 through to her passing in 1897. I hope you will enjoy the posts.

A small bird stands on a thin branch, it's claws grasping the wood tightly. it's body is mainly bright yellow, with a thin black line up the centre of it's belly. It's wings are mostly green and blue with a small white bar. It's head is turned to one side as it looks up towards the sky. It is mostly white, with a blue cap and black lines around its neck, through it's eye and under it's small pointed beak
