Great Thread on Mynydd Llwydiarth

Red Squirrels Mynydd Llwydiarth
On reading your great thread on your walk in Mynydd Llwydiarth
I had to add my own little thread.
I was in mynydd Llwydiarth on September 25th 2013 and found it so peaceful. It has a special feel to it; especially at this time of year. If you like a spot of foraging then there are lots of mushrooms around at the moment. So, as long as you know what your doing you can get yourself a few tasty mushrooms to sample once your red squirrel spotting is done.
I started my walk today from the Wern y Wylan
side and took the opportunity to gather some cobnuts for nice roasted hazel nuts later on in the Winter months. There's nothing better than a little mulled wine and roast hazel nuts - very festive.
I was keeping an eye out for any sweet chestnut trees for nuts as these are also great roasted. Alas. To no avail, although no red squirrel spotted I got an amazing view of a buzzard silently gliding through the woodland canopy.
Such majestic birds carry you off to places in your spirit. Seeing beautiful creatures going about there business and paying no heed to me or my two border terriers.
We had a great day! I am so jealous of the lucky people who have there home in and around the forest. What a wonderful place to be?Mynydd Llwydiarth
really is a Must-do-Walk
for anyone to enjoy I certainly will be out there again soon.
All the very best
