VIDEO – Murmuration in Cardiff City Centre

Having seen two local people post videos of murmurations around Cardiff over previous weeks I thought I’d keep my eyes on the skies and attempt to see my own murmuration in real life! A few days down Cardiff Bay and no sighting of any birds at all but alas a wander back up the River […]

CARDIFF- Foggy weather

Waking up early on St David’s Day to look out of the kitchen window and think ‘there’s a lot of condensation on the window’ so I wiped the window clear only to discover there was no condensation but infact on closer inspection it was some really bad fog outside! A quick walk into the City […]

PHOTOS-Ant and Dec at Britains Got Talent auditions

ITV hit talent show Britains Got Talent held auditions in a very cold Cardiff Bay in late January. Hosts Ant and Dec quickly met and greeted the audience before recording a few links with the crowds patiently shivvering behind them.

RUGBY-It’s all starting to get a bit exciting!

Earlier walking through Cardiff City centre and it just dawned on me how significant this whole rugby thing is! Shivers were sent down my spine the more I thought about it.

TV-Filming outside the Mill- ennium Stadium

Whilst passing the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff there seemed to be a lot of lorries and equipment all parked up near the South entrance to the stadium. There was a large crane, some Lee Lighting trucks, a Panalux truck and some other vehicles aswell. I’m sure in previous Dr Who and Torchwood location shoots I […]

For once it wasnt a mad rush to get into the […]
