In summer, keep your eyes peeled for the Adonis blue butterflies and 37 other species of butterfly that have been spotted around the hill. You can find out how to spot some of the different species with our short guide.
You can also meet black Welsh Mountain Sheep and Belted Galloway cattle. If you start your walk down by the river banks you might even see the brilliant blue flash of a kingfisher.
