Aber Falls in Carnarvonshire. Lovely place. Bit of a walk to get there though.

Odell, Beds
Odell, Beds
These village signs are unique to the county and were erected to celebrate the 1951 Festival of Britain...

See one of those signs and you know you're in Bedfordshire!

I see from that map that there is an obvious hole in my claimed territory so I'll add this picture from Henley and claim Oxfordshire to tidy it up!! :-D

Your star has been planted Mick but I'll post up the map after a resonable bunch has been added.

Yes apologies from me Jim the the map updating runs a bit behind the actual posts :-D , but the posts are the definitive claims. You were the first star on the map with Northants, and I allocated you a yellow star with red border and you will see from the updated map that you have indeed officially claimed Northamptonshire and Somerset :-D

I'm sure in your photo archives there are a few more counties you can bag. Huntingdon right now is free :-D

....and rarer in the wild than a Moray Firth Bottlenose Dolphin, we have Citroenus Zedexius at Rosemarkie, Black Isle looking out to the Moray Firth from the "Dolphin Mile" stretching along to Chanonry Point.

...and seeing as we are working from a pre-1975 set of Old Counties, Callender was at the time firmly part of Perthshire.

I claim Perthshire

I present a trio of Capris in Callender Car park
