Our first glimpse of the Clwydian Hills - not an objective today.
Four young calves looking lost and wondering where there mums are!

Scarecrow outside, St. Tyrnog's Church, Llandyrnog - two notices - "Messy Church" (always good to see) and "Thank the Lord for the Harvest"(Also good to acknowledge).
Walk stats: Distance: 7.1 miles. Climb: 526'.
Time: 4 hours 24 minutes. On the move walking average: 2.1 m.p.h. Overall walk average: 1.6 m.p.h.
Group: Martyn, Annie, David S and Paul.
Thankfully today the BBC and the Met Office got it right, the rain stopped as we arrived at Llandyrnog and within half an hour of walking the Sun was shining and with a fleece on I soon felt overdressed, but not for long!
This is a walk that isn't particularly special, especially if you are trying to think of what would make a good photograph, but still is it is a delightful walk when the Sun was shining brightly and there was hardly any breeze to to call. Days like this are special and we should be thankful for this as well as the scarecrow outside St. Tyrnog's Church, Llandyrnog notice "Thank the Lord for the Harvest".
It was good today to see that two historically significant churches, St. Cwyfan's, Llangwyfan and St. Tyrnog's Church, Llandyrnog were both open and we were able to see inside both.
Lunch was taken just after heading South east off the road after passing Fron Baanadl. We sat on the field edge/fence boundary, it was so warm it could have been been a mid-Summer day, not the end of October!
Birds seen or heard today included: Carrion crow, Jackdaw, Rook, Herring gull, Sparrowhawk, Blue tit, Great tit, Common buzzard, Pied wagtail, House sparrow, Black-billed magpie, Eurasian jay and Fieldfare (the first returning birds seen on a walk this Autumn/Winter).
Thanks to Paul's inquisitiveness concerning "Seven Sacraments" window in the St. Tyrnog's Church, Llandyrnog, we were able to enjoy after walk refreshments at the Blue Bell Inn at Halkyn, we arrived at at 15-03!
