It's been a great summer for wildlife photography so far and long may it continue!

The Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2009 exhibition is coming to Cardiff this month. The exhibit will run from 19 June - 12 Sept at the National Museum of Wales so well worth a visit if you're interested in wildlife photography and improving your skills.

Bearded tits have been in the news lately at the RSPB reserve in Conwy. A pair have finally bred - the first for 40 years in North Wales and the chicks have recently fledged.

Kenbray 54 snapped this bearded tit amongst the reed beds:
And it just goes to show that you don't have to move far away from urban populations to find great wildlife on your doorstep. This great crested grebe complete with chicks was taken at Roath Park, Cardiff by Moses Davies:
