This was the second week running that we were down to just three men on a Thursday walk. The weather was kind to us, although at times it was a little humid whenever we were sheltered from any breeze. The only rain experienced was a few spots as we made the final ascent towards Bodysgallen Hall.
We have done this walk several times before, so on this occasion we went on a few new (to us) paths that missed out some sections of the described walk.
Lunch was taken in the quarry at Bryn Pydew Nature Reserve.
Overall a pleasant walk with plenty of good views both towards Snowdonia and the Coast from the Little Orme towards Rhos on Sea.
Birds seen or today included: Common blackbird, Goldfinch, Barn swallow, Jackdaw, Carrion crow, Black-billed magpie, Eurasian jay, House sparrow, Black-headed gull, Woodpigeon, Herring gull and Common buzzard.
After walk drinks were enjoyed at the Britannia Inn, where the Lees bitter went down well.
