Moel Findeg, Deborah's Well and More 3rd March 2011

Our first Spring lamb on the hills of Clwyd (Denbighshire).
The group we nearly lost!
The best bit of wall for lunch or was it?
Have we got to go  all the way down there?
On the summit of Moel Findeg.

Walk stats: Distance:10.5 miles. Climb>1377'.
Time: 5 hours 35 minutes. On the move walking average: 2.4 m.p.h. Overall walk average: 1.9 m.p.h.
Group: Martyn, Roger, Gordon, Phil, Sylvia and Dave J., Celia, Carol H., Fran and Tito.
This was an unusual day weatherise, there seemed to be a challenge between the Sun shining and the fog descending, thankfully the Sun won!
Although this was an area that we have walked many times, this walk provided several paths that were new to all of us, always a bonus for a walk on what we regard as our local patch.
This walk made us realise how much footpath marker posts and new stiles had been added in this area since the last time we had completed this walk. Well done to Denbighshire C.C. 
This was a good and varied walk that I'm sure will be repeated in the future.
Birds seen or heard today included: Common buzzard, Carrion crow, Jackdaw, Blackbird, European robin, Greenfinch, Raven, Blue tit, Great tit, Chaffinch, European robin, Black-billed magpie, Nuthatch, Common starling, Song thrush, Woodpigeon, Collared dove and Raven.
After walk drinks were enjoyed at the Glasfryn, where Roosters Special went down well, even if the cost of soft drinks didn't!
