Overall a very pleasant day for walking, a five minute shower was all we had to endure and the strong winds weren't cold. Nevertheless only one member of the group walked in shorts and a T-shirt for most of the walk!
Lunch was taken at the Pen-y-Ball monument, but attempts to hide from the cooling wind wasn't too successful. Hot drinks in flasks were welcome!
The views from the trig-point on Pen-y-Ball Top, were superb, particularly towards the Wirral.
Birds seen or heard today included: House sparrow, Carrion crow, Jackdaw, Black-billed magpie, Common buzzard, Common pheasant, Woodpigeon and Goldfinch.
After walk drinks were enjoyed at the Britannia Inn, Halkyn, where the Lees Bitter went down well and the fire was just about to be lit.
