Dr Rhys Jones at Royal Welsh Show 2012
Dr Rhys Jones, co-presenter of Royal Welsh Show highlights on BBC Two Wales, blogs specially for BBC Wales Nature this week.
I am having an amazing time at the Royal Welsh Show show this year. I have to give a massive shout out to the Davies family from Whitland for allowing me to help prepare their champion dairy cows for competition; what an honour!

I've also been having a great time with the James family from just outside Builth Wells as they also saw red cards aplenty with their Blue faced Leicester ewes:

I was really moved watching the Spitfire take to the air over the show ground. There is just something about the sound of the aircraft as it ripped overhead that seemed to leave the crowd spellbound and feel really privileged to have witnessed the display.
Just how much longer will we be able to witness a sight like that in our skies? Today is going to be another big day at the show but I cannot wait!
