While walking around a local lake I spotted a mute swan on her nest. I snapped a photo before taking a detour to avoid getting too close :-)

The Caldey Stone dates for the 5th or 6th century and features two inscriptions, one in Latin, the other in Ogham. The Ogham is inscribed as a series of lines following the edge of the stone. Ogham was first used in Ireland before spreading across the Irish sea into Scotland, Wales and Cornwall.
Caldey Island is just off the Pembrokeshire coast where the Bristol Channel meets the Celtic Sea. The Pembrokeshire coastline is visible on the horizon.

The scene above is etched on the wall of the 12th century Saint Illtyd's Church on Caldey Island. How old do you think it is?
