Glasgwm (15th July)

Dad and I set of around midday to climb the nearby mountain of Glasgwm (774 MASL).  In all honesty, I wasn't expecting to see a great deal of birds so decided on leaving the scope.  As it happens, it wasn't such a bad idea after all as I only encountered 4 Ravens, a Buzzard and a couple Golden-ringed Dragonflies.  The numerous Small Pearl-bordered Fritillaries were far more exciting (not least as they were a new lifer!).  Unfortunately, they were extremely flighty and I only managed one quick photo of a single that landed briefly for a couple seconds.
