This was another glorious day for walking, dry and largely Sunny, a little on the cool side whenever the Sun disappeared behind cloud.
The views were good, but hazy in the distance, but the Vale of Clwyd was much clearer than on Thursday (28th February 2013).
The route from Moel y Parc and Penycloddiau as well as the contouring track on the West side of Penycloddiau was popular with other walkers too. I don't think I've seen so many walkers and their dogs on this section of Offa's Dyke before.
Lunch was taken on the Southern slopes of Peycloddiau, a leisurely half an hour in the Sun, before setting off for our stroll back to Aberwheeler.
Birds seen or heard today included: Rook, Jackdaw, Carion crow, Ravn, Blue tit, Great tit, Chaffinch, Greenfinch, European robin, House sparrow, Dunnock, Common buzzard and Crossbill.
After walk drinks were enjoyed at the Blue Bell in Halkyn, where Blue Bell Bitter and Dark Blue were sampled (beers brewed by Facers for the Blue Bell. A good choice of beers and ciders, but we'll probably go back to the Brit next time!
