Out in the open at last!

A better view than we had this morning!

The weather today could have been better! Dampness in the air at the start, rain as we headed towards Coed Llandegla, but at least we didn't have rain at lunch time at World's End!
Most of the walk was easy to follow, except when the leader got it wrong and decided we needed to explore one path necessarily! Thankfully this unplanned extension didn't didn't mean that our route went over the ten miles!
Our descent into the Eglwyseg Valley went past Pant Glas, all gates were shut and Holly (a labrador couldn't escape, so her owner was happy to pass pleasantries with us!
As we were having lunch at World's End a young cyclist came off his bike as he went through the ford. Thankfully he wasn't too badly injured and we helped him on his way after supplying him with a few plasters/bandages.
A pleasant walk, that would be even better on a good dry and sunny day.
Not many birds today, but they included: Stonechat, Meadow pipit, Carrion crow, Raven, Common buzzard, Meadow pipit, Common swift, Willow warbler, House Martin, Common pheasant and Blue tit.
Overall an enjoyable walk.
After walk drinks were enjoyed at the Red Lion at Penyffordd, where Doombar, not my favourite beer, but it tasted good today.
