The weather forecast was good, but what we had was much better!
After about 10-30, any clouds lifted and we had blue skies and glorious warm Sunshine all day. my only regret was not bringing my sun hat and sunglasses!
This was in every sense of the word a delightful walk despite the angle of of the Sun meant that we spent a fair amount of time trying to avoid its glare! However we just had to turn our gaze in any other direction to be rewarded with superb views.
I must be getting old, I allowed the group to have more that 40 minutes for lunch, but it was a good lunch spot and it was warm and Sunny and had good views!
Birds seen or heard today included: Jackdaw, European robin, Herring gull, Rook, Carrion crow, Raven, Stonechat, Common blackbird, Meadow pipit, Black-billed magpie and Red-billed chough.
After walk drinks were enjoyed at the Blue Bell in Halkyn.
