January melancholia! Despite all , we popped up the Elan and enjoyed a rather barren afternoon! A forlorn Raven croaked in sympathy from a mist enshrouded crag and we located ten distant Mandarins on Dolymynach and a Stonechat past Hirnant…oh dear! Has to happen on times! Still we had another handsome LTTit @ Cefnllys & a female Bullfinch (first for weeks). Forecast GOOD-roll on tomorrow then.
