A Lovely stroll along the track running below Garn Fadryn this afternoon in glorious sunshine produced an abundance of wildlife and stunning views of the coast around the Llyn.
I recorded one individual of The Gatekeeper (Pyronia tithonus) a rather nice looking butterfly, our first record of this species in the area. We also saw Meadow Brown and Small White Butterflies. We watched a pair of Merlins displaying spectacular acrobatics in the stiff breeze along the slopes of Garn Fadryn, they really are masters of the air ! Other birds seen included Stonechats, Pied Wagtail, Ravens and a solitary Buzzard.
