    Dirtsurfing is a combination of surfing, biking and mountain boarding. It's great fun but there is a downside - you have to walk back up any hill you surf down!

    Simon Watmore sent in this clip of himself (yellow board), Andy Davies (yellow board) and Gavin James (green board) flying down the fire tracks...

    I mentioned in an earlier blog about the fishy fun happening all this week at the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff.

    Well the fishy theme continues... as we've had a number of great shots sent in recently. Here's my pick of the bunch so far:

    Tony Llewellyn captured this remarkable looking spoonbill, devouring...

    I've got a feeling this duck is too late to qualify for team G.B but it's a nice little clip anyway, sent in to our Nature Flickr group by Simon Palmer.

    In this clip, the melting ice signifies the changing seasons as the duck moves from ice (winter) to the melted water (spring)... ;)

    BBC Wales Music BBC Wales Music

    While the Welsh presence at the Brit Awards tonight may be a little paltry, in the classical version of the awards, the country has no fewer than three nominees up for Best Classical Album.

    BBC Wales Music BBC Wales Music

    With the Brit Awards on tonight, and Duffy and Marina And The Diamonds the sole Welsh representatives (Duffy as part of the frankly execrable list of the best 'BRITs Album of 30 Years' which is as nonsensical as its title, and Marina as one of the Critics' Choice nominees), we've been reliving some past...

    Based on some crunchy remixes and promising original tracks the team here in BBC towers thought we'd continue to focus and feature a run of really young new names here in Wales producing exciting music.

    From Leucine, Ivan Moult, to Hail! The Planes, the bands and producers in session have given the show...

    I hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed that traumatic game of rugby on Saturday!

    Unfortunately, there was a little rain in north west Wales on Sunday, which wasn't forecast.

    Despite trying, it's impossible to be right all of the time when it comes to predicting the weather, but we have got better...
