We had a morning training with the Maritime and Coastguard Agency helicopter from Caernarfon, thanks to them for coming to work with us. Regular training makes for much safer and better executed operations when it's usually dark, wet and windy! Some great photos of Moel Famau on their arrival Clwydian Range & Dee Valley AONB. #teamwork
