Cwm Phillip Valley Dropping away behind the pulpit viewpoint is Cwm Phillip valley. The far slope has been planted as a mixed woodland which includes rowan, ash and oak. A large holly tree can be seen along side the track. The berries of holly and rowan provide an autumn snack for birds, such as the chaffinch in the picture. The bracken covered slope provides a great habitat for many small mammals. They form a network of tunnels under cover of the vegetation. Birds of prey can often be seen hunting along the bank. This is a male Kestrel. The stream which runs along the bottom of Cwm Phillip valley feeds into Fish Pond that we saw earlier.
