View from the bikers hut

The self named Bikers Hut at the very top of the Blaenserchan Valley was a convenient resting stop for a weary naturalist. And so it was that on Saturday morning I launched into an early morning walk looking for hawfinch a bird that seemed to have been seen by everyone apart from me. 

The valley was alive with redwing and fieldfare along with a healthy blackbird population feeding on the abundant crop of hawthorn berries. A large stand of pearly everlasting was still green enough to photograph. And vivid blue of cobalt crust - the current SEWBReC record of the month- was a nice find on my return.
