As Fergalh states there are many trees down at the top. Quite how you find the actual summit in the mass of fallen trees is beyond me! The winds must have been tremendous to cause such damage. The local farmer obviously feeds pheasant for possible shooting but a flock of Yellowhammers were taking advantage of the free meal and were a colourful sight on an otherwise grey day.
