Once again this turned out to be a good day for walking, a little on the cool side, but after an early scare of a five minute , the weather was fine.
The first part of the walk went well and route finding was relatively easy, but trying to find our route on the new part of the walk proved much more challenging, especially when paths on the OS maps seemed to be incorrect, and access gates were locked.
However some of the scenery seen from the East side of Mynydd Tryfan was superb, and well worth taking the path across Bwrdd Arthur.
Birds seen or heard today included: Blue tit, Great tit, Wood nuthatch, Meadow pipit, Goldfinch, Common blackbird, House sparrow, Common starling, Fieldfare, Carrion crow, Jackdaw, Raven and a Red kite.
Once again we saw a Brown hare racing across the field away from us.
After walk drinks were enjoyed at the Britannia Inn at Pentre Halkyn. Once again the Lees bitter was on form.
This post was posted a little later than usual as Chester was grid-locked and I didn't get in until after 18-00, and I decided that feeding the washing machine and getting my evening meal ready had greater priority!
