Welcome to Wyewatch!

After 12 wonderful years of living in rural Brittany, we returned to the UK in February 2016 to a cottage in the Wye Valley near Hay on Wye.  My blog of twelve years has moved to .

  I hope to share something of our new life in rural Herefordshire on anything from the progress in our garden, to all things local including wildlife, birds, plants and much more.  There is much to discover in this area, so watch this space!
