I set off from Glascwm on a rather murky cool winters day. After doing a 5k race in Builth Wells I wanted a cool down walk in these little visited hill. My first objective was the higher Little Hill. A Red Kite was quartering overhead on its long wings. I then headed over to Gwaunceste Hill on route I met a large party heading the opposite way. As I reached the summit trig the cloud lifted to give views all be it limited. There was a few tiny patches of snow close to the summit. It was hard to see but Radnor Forest looked to have had a covering. I descended in sunshine to the other Little Hill. On the latter I put up 5 Red Grouse. I headed down to the minor road and climbed steeply to the unmarked summit of Glascwm Hill. From the summit I headed down to the village in the gathering twilight. Time taken 3 hours 15 minutes for 8.25 miles. Other wildlife a Buzzard, Coal Tits and Blue Tits.isabelle20/01/2019
