I have been trying to identify a bird that has been around all afternoon, always in the hedge between us and next door, no sight of it, but an unusual sound, one I have not heard before, later looking around the front garden, I heard it again in the neighbours , after creeping closer and peering into their garden, I found the answer..........their dog had a new toy   :-[     :laugh:   :laugh:

Of which were seven in Denbighshire, six in Flintshire, three in Wrexham, two in Anglesey, two in Conwy and one in Gwynedd.

Wrexham remains the county with the highest number of positive cases with 1,481 compared to 869 in Flintshire, 868 in Denbighshire, 808 in Conwy, 665 in Gwynedd and 495 in Anglesey.

The Betsi Cadwaladr Health Board reported no new deaths meaning the total remains at 423 - the highest in Wales.
Wales recorded a further rise of 199 new cases, but no new deaths.
Since recording began, a total of 456,192 people have been tested for the virus.

Dr Giri Shankar, Incident Director for the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)
“We are concerned that much of the good work conducted over the past few months is at risk of going to waste. If the situation continues to worsen, we may find ourselves at the same levels of infection that we experienced earlier this year in March and April; and with that comes the potential for more extended restrictions to be imposed nationally.”
“Coronavirus has not gone away.

Talking recently on the Forum about inflatables being dangerous, this story shows a bit of common sense pays off.

A boy has thanked a lifeboat crew who rescued him after he was swept out to sea on a paddleboard.

The RNLI said the teenager was rescued off Aberdaron, Gwynedd, on Saturday afternoon and flown to Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor by coastguard helicopter.

It said he had been in serious condition after swallowing water and was showing signs of hypothermia.

The next day he was discharged from hospital and was able to visit the crew with his father to say thank you.

The RNLI said it took about 20 minutes to find the boy after he left his board in an attempt to swim ashore.
It said he had been carrying his mobile phone in a waterproof pouch and was able to talk to police in an attempt to describe his exact location.

It said the rescue had been hampered by a significant swell, an outgoing tide, offshore wind and poor visibility.
RNLI helm Fritz Williams said: "This callout shows just how crucial a lifejacket is and having a means of calling for help.

"A lifejacket can buy you valuable time in a time-critical situation whilst you wait for help to arrive.
"Staying with your vessel/flotation device can help you to keep warm out of the water and also make you easier to find."   ref BBC

Nice to see that RNLI are highlighting this lads common sense approach to safety.  $good$

A dramatic 999 call made by a 17-year-old boy who fell from his paddleboard into the sea is being used to promote an RNLI coastal safety message.

RNLI footage and audio from the coastguard has been viewed nearly 30,000 times

"Taking a means of calling for help when heading out around the coast can make all the difference," the RNLI said.

It said it had given out 7,000 free waterproof phone pouches in 24 hours as part of its joint beach safety campaign with the coastguard service.
