Just off the Blorenge

Scrambled around the slopes of Carn y gorfydd just of the Blorenge this afternoon fantisizing about the possibility of a great grey shrike on top of the many scattered rowan trees in the area. Alas it wasn't to be, in fact bird wise the walk was quieter than a church mouse with only a raven and buzzard breaking the silence.

There are some impressive culturally important boundary features across the wider landscape here. From drystone walls to decaying lines of wooden fence posts, many the size of railway sleepers, festooned and caked in various bryophytes and lichens.  The remants of a large dead sessile oak tree was riddled with the exit holes of saproxylic beetles.
