We were a little late getting started on today's walk and didn't get home 'till around 7 p.m., so my apologies to Carol, Tim and Jean. We didn't get lost, I just walk slow these days!
The weather today was almost perfect for walk, a pleasant temperature, a cool breeze, little sunshine and virtually no rain ( at least not enough to make me put waster-proofs on).
This was a a superb walk in largely open moorland, where we only saw two people that we were able to speak yo all day.
The views today were good, especially towards Snowdonia, where the Snowdon range, the Glyders and the Carneddau could all be seen, admittedly some with their heads in the clouds.
The birds sen or heard today included: Common kestrel, Red kite, Barn swallow, House martin, Lesser black-backed gull, Common blackbird, Meadow pipit, Carrion crow and Raven.
After walk drinks were enjoyed at the Britannia Inn at Halkyn, where the Lees bitter was good enough to bring me back to life, and some of the locals were surprised that we were so late getting there!
