    Lake Vyrnwy

    September 1, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    Walked up in to the hills along a circular track, some logging going on and lots of pheasants as well as a view of the reservoir dam. Parked up at car park at top end of reservoir then in the morning we did a route visiting Rhigwargor falls and round to the Centenary Hide. We spotted some Kestrals on the hillside and Cole Tits in the trees on the walk.Read more

    Have a particular love of this area. My family come from between Glynceriog and Llanharmon Dyffryn Ceiriog . Did you see the memorial for the men killed in the construction of the reservoir? Shocking.

    Parked at a Snowdonia National Park car park near a train station and did a circular walk along the Fairbourne / Barmouth Estuary and back through a small woodland. Saw loads of Swallows and Martins on a telelphone wire as well as lots of Meadow Pippets, a Spotted Flycatcher and Redstarts.Read more

    Stopped at a layby near the small toll bridge and wandered along the Mawddach Trail. Spent a little time watching birds on the estuary mud flats from beside the closed RSPB observatory - saw a few Common Sandpipers but not much going on.Read more

    Great to be back! Spent a day chilling, then sailed the next day but unfortunately broke the fairleader / gib cleat off the boat. Spent the next day canoeing round the whole lake, having a picnic lunch on a fallen tree and buying a bakewell tart from the bakery in Bala for desert!Read more

    Beautiful overnight spot with some great looking walks. We hiked to an Iron Age fort on a hill then got lost on the way back and ended up climbing to the summit of the mountain without a path! Views of the sea in many directions over the hills.Read more

    A lovely place for an overnight stop.

    On the Llyn Peninsula, returning from heather covered hills to the sun shining on the sea as it wraps around coves and headlands.
