Galw pob gwyliwr dwrgwnMAE GWYLIO DWRGWN ar hyd arfordir Sir Benfro ar gynnydd, ond mae angen help ychwanegol i ddarganfod mwy am y ffefryn hwn ymhlith y bywyd gwyllt blewog.

Maw Awdurdod Parc Cenedlaethol Arfordir Penfro wedi ymuno â Sue Burton, Swyddog Ardal Arbennig Cadwraeth y Môr Sir Benfro (SAC) i ofyn i bobol i roi gwybod os gwelwyd dwrgwn ar gyfer project ymchwil sir gyfan.

Cofnodwyd fod mwy na 60 wedi’u gweld gan aelodau’r cyhoedd ar Arfordir Penfro ers i’r project gychwyn deufis yn ôl.

Dywedodd Ian Meophan, Ceidwad y Parc Cenedlaethol : “Dim ond un math o ddyfrgi sydd gennym yn y DU- y Dyfrgi Ewrasiaidd- sydd i’w weld yn byw fel arfer mewn dŵr croyw, ond yn yr Alban mae’r dwrgwn hyn yn gwneud defnydd cyson o’r môr, ac ymddengys eu bod yn Sir Benfro yn treulio llawer o amser ar yr arfordir hefyd.

“Mae pobol wedi eu gweld o gwmpas Tyddewi, Stackpole ac Abermawr. Mae llawer o’r adroddiadau hyd yn hyn wedi dod oddi wrth gaiacwyr ar y môr, syrffwyr a phobol sy allan yn arfordira. Roedd rhywun hyd yn oed yn lwcus i weld dyfrgi gyda heligog (aderyn môr) yn ei geg.”

Mae Ian yn gwahodd pobol i roi gwybod am yr hyn welon nhw i Galeri Oriel y Parc a’r Ganolfan Groeso yn Nhyddewi, lle gallwch chi binbwyntio’r man lle gweloch chi’r dyfrgi ar y map. Trosglwyddir llyfr log wedyn i Sue Burton Swyddog SAC Morol Sir Benfro ar gyfer y project, sydd yn ail adrodd arolwg arfordirol 2002 ac sydd am benderfynu os yw’r dwrgwn sy’n gwneud defnydd o’r arfordir yn boblogaeth wahanol i’r rhai sy’n defnyddio’r dyfrffyrdd mewndirol.

Dywedodd Sue: “Yr ydym yn gwybod yn barod fod dwrgwn yn defnyddio’r rhan hon o’r arfordir i borthianna a hyd yn oed bridio. Yr hyn yr ydym am ei wybod nawr yw os ydyn nhw’n ei ddefnyddio’n dymhorol neu os ydyw’r un dwrgwn yn defnyddio’r arfordir drwy’r flwyddyn.

“Yn ogystal â dwrgwn newydd a welwyd, mae diddordeb gennym mewn dwrgwn a welwyd yn mynd nôl i 2002, yn enwedig unrhyw rhai a welwyd i’r gogledd o Drefdraeth, ac i’r dwyrain o Bosherston gan mai ychydig iawn o rai a welwyd sydd wedi’u cofnodi gennym yn yr ardaloedd hyn. Yr ydym yn dibynnu’n helaeth ar ddwrgwn a welwyd gan y cyhoedd ac felly mwya‘i gyd o wylwyr, gore gyd!”

Mae Awdurdod y Parc hefyd yn defnyddio gwybodaeth am unrhyw ddwrgwn a welwyd yn bresennol i gynghori darparwyr gweithgareddau awyr agored ynglŷn ag ardaloedd sensitif arbennig, er mwyn iddyn nhw osgoi ymyrryd â’r dwrgwn a’u cynefin.

Rhowch wybod am ddwrgwn a welwyd gennych yn Oriel y Parc ( ar agor bob dydd, 10am-4.30pm) neu ffoniwch Sue Burton ar 01646 696108 neu e-bostiwch SACofficer@PembrokeshireMarineSAC.org.uk, gan roi’r dyddiad, yr amser a’r man lle gweloch chi’r dyfrgi.

Mae Sue Burton ynghyd â Geoff Lyles o’r Ymgynghoriaeth Dwrgwn, yn rhoi sgwrs yn nigwyddiad Marine Wildlife Sightings ar Dachwedd 20fed, wedi’i drefnu gan Fforwm Arfordir Penfro a hynny yn Theatr Myrddin, Hwlffordd.

School nativity – danger in the manger?

Published

on

IT’S the time of year when every parent enjoys watching their little darlings perform in the school nativity play. It used to be that the show was documented by hundreds of proud parents snapping away on their cameras, but more recently school politics and privacy issues have come into play, with some schools ruling that it is unacceptable to take pictures or videos of the show.

But what is the legal position when it comes to videos and photographs of school events? Are schools able to impose a blanket ban? If you ignore the school’s photography policy, what legal action can they take against you? And if another parent shares a group shot featuring your child, without permission, can you force them to take it down.

Anthony Di Palma, Solicitor at DAS Law, looks at the photographic minefield that is the school nativity play for The Herald.

My child’s school has a photography policy which states that there is a blanket ban on taking photos at the nativity play. Is this legal?

Any owner of private property may restrict the use of photography or video equipment on the premises. If ignored, you may be asked to leave and may be deemed to be trespassing if you refuse.

I signed my child’s schools consent form stating I won’t take any photos. What legal ramifications will I face should I choose to ignore the policy?

The consent form is unlikely to be legally enforceable as a contract if there is no financial loss to the school, and there are no laws generally against taking photographs of your own or other people’s children as long as the photographs are not deemed ‘indecent’, or are likely to have the effect of harming or harassing the children.

Are there any laws against sharing group shots of my child’s nativity play photos online? 

As a best practice, it is advisable that parents should avoid sharing photographs of children without obtaining prior consent of that child’s parent or guardian. However, as long as the photographs are not deemed ‘indecent’, or are likely to have the effect of harming or harassing them, then there is nothing legally stopping you from doing so.

What legal action can I take against people that share group photos of the school nativity play on social media that include my child without my permission?

You can ask the person to remove the photograph, however if they refuse there is no realistic legal action you can take. Privacy laws under the Human Rights Act cannot be enforced against other private individuals and unless you own the copyright in the photograph, or the image is offensive or indecent, then the social media site has no obligation to remove that photo if it is reported to them.

If I blur out other children’s faces can I share school play photos online?

You don’t have to blur out children’s faces in order to share them online, as the Data Protection Act doesn’t apply to photographs taken for private use and which do not identify the child (i.e. name them). However, if you would be concerned about images of your own child appearing without your permission, blurring out other children’s faces may be a sensible step to take.

Aberaeron: Playing field gains Centenary Field status

Published

on

THE PARK known as Square Field in the centre of Aberaeron has been designated a Centenary Field and named as Cae Canmlwyddiant Ceredigion Centenary Field – Cae Sgwâr / Square Field, Aberaeron.

In gaining the Centenary Field status, the field will be protected in perpetuity to honour the memory of the millions who lost their lives in the First World War. Cae Canmlwyddiant Ceredigion Centenary Field – Cae Sgwâr / Square Field, Aberaeron is the first Centenary Field in Ceredigion.

Ceredigion County Council’s Armed Forces Champion, Councillor Paul Hinge said, “I am delighted that Aberaeron Town Council’s application to dedicate this fantastic green space as a Centenary Field has been accepted by Fields in Trust, and that the County Council was able to support it. It pays an important tribute to those who lost their lives in the First World War, including many young Ceredigion men went to war and didn’t return.

This has been an interesting journey and one that as the Armed Forces Champion and a veteran, I am proud to support.”

A plaque commemorating the status was unveiled by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Dyfed, Miss Sara Edwards.

The Mayor of Aberaeron and Local Member, Councillor Elizabeth Evans, said, “Aberaeron residents are rightly proud of Cae Sgwâr’s new status as the designated Centenary Field of Ceredigion, it has a proud history of being the towns recreational field and there isn’t one community in Ceredigion whose children haven’t played on it at some point. It is a fitting commemoration in this hundredth anniversary year of the ending of the First World War and as we remember the past, we also look to the future and Cae Sgwar’s newly protected status in perpetuity as a recreational field, thanks to the Centenary Field Trust.”

A short ceremony was held to unveil the plaque where Miss Edwards, Councillor Hinge and Councillor Evans spoke alongside Ceredigion County Council’s Chairman, Councillor Hag Harris and the Fields in Trust Chairman, Brynmor Williams.
