Llyn Coed y Dinas

For Mothers DAy this year the children and i headed to Welshpool to visit Llyn Coed y Dinas a Nature Reserve just a few miles from where we live. The weather was terrible occasional rain showers but the breaks brought a lovely sunny day. Kellyn and i both took our camera's and had fun chasing each other to get pictures. When we arrived the rain was heavy so we went in the bird hide first. Kellyn and Ceienna love watching the birds and Kellyn is building up a good knowledge of different birds now, even though the weather was bad there was still plenty wild life around.

 Eventually the rain  gave way  and we headed out the hide it was still slightly drizzling but Kellyn and Ceienna carried on regardless and Arrianna was snuggled up warm under blankets and had the rain cover over the pushchair. 

After a walk around the reserve We headed back to the car picked up our picnic and then went to sit in the hut by the pond for our lunch. The children were very happy. After lunch we knelt by the pond and took a good look in the water we found some frog sporn Kellyn and Ceienna have been doing projects on frogs so it was good to see it in a natural environment.
  The 3 children were getting tired now so we walked back to the car loaded up and headed for home where we made bracelets together and had a fun evening doing lots of activities. Bath time was fun too as we had a water fight. Great fun together. 
Llyn Coed y Dinas is an ideal place to visit with young children especially if they have just started walking the footpath is easy to use as it is flat, The reserve is not very big but the use of space is wonderful. For older children there is a trail where they need to find different wildlife in carvings around the reserve Kellyn and Ceienna both enjoyed this too. There is a good sized Car Park here and it is easy to get too once you know where it is. We all recommend a visit here.
