We've had some famous visitors to Glaslyn over the years, including the artist J.M.W. Turner, who came to sketch the area in the late eighteenth century. This was well before Mrs G and her family put the Glaslyn on the map, of course!

There have been some stunning Turneresque skies above the Glaslyn at Porthmadog this week, including this view from Sunday. Get your paintbrush out!

If you think Starlings are brown and boring, look again. They have some amazing colours on those feathers - from bright greens and vivid purples to those stunning golden flecks.This individual was photographed on the Glaslyn this Autumn.

The Starling is the most numerous bird species in winter on the Glaslyn area by a long chalk. A roost a few miles away from the Ospreys nest may contain over half a million birds some winters!

Os 'da chi'n ystyried y drudwen yn aderyn di-olwg, edrychwch eto. Mae 'na liwiau anhygoel ar yr adar yma - o wyrdd a phorffor llachar i'r smotiau aur arbennig yna. Fe dynnwyd y llun yma ar y Glaslyn yn ystod yr Hydref eleni.

Y drudwen yw'r aderyn mwyaf niferus yn ystod y Gaeaf ar y Glaslyn o bell ffordd. Ar adegau, mae dros hanner miliwn o adar yn clwydo ychydig o filltiroedd i ffwrdd o nyth y gweilch!
