A superb day for walking, not too hot and not too cold, a two hankies day for me, almost perfect! We set off at a cracking pace of over 3 m.m.h, but that soon changed as we had to climb uphill in search of our ancestors!
New to us was the various information points near to each spot of interest, whoever is responsible should be congratulated. Thank you.
This section of the walk, in search of our ancestors never fails to impress me, the minimal climb uphill is worth the effort!
Lunch was taken around the hide overlooking Llyn Brenig. Only three decided to eat their lunch surrounded by what everyone else thought were probably droppings from Barn swallows that had nested on the roof space.
The surprise of the day was to see half a dozen cars drive up and down the minor road at the North end of the reservoir being filmed by the car in front, always with the yellow car last but one! Whatever they were being filmed for we don't know, but that is our challenge to find out!
Birds seen or heard today included: European robin, Goldfinch, Pied wagtail, Meadow pipit, Woodpigeon, Great tit, Carrion crow, Raven, Kestrel, Common buzzard, Great cormorant, Herring gull, Lesser black-backed gull, Tufted duck, Red grouse and Mallard..
After walk drinks were enjoyed as always at the Britannia Inn at Pentre Halkyn.
