A small but beautifully formed group of enthusiasts set off on a stroll to Brackenfield with the weather dependent option of extending the walk to the River Amber and around the reservoir.
The pace was very much on the slow side of ‘plodding’ so the extended option wasn’t called upon. As usual this time of year, ‘it’s quiet out there’ but everyone enjoyed the summer stroll and we managed a total of 36 species.
200 plus Greylag Geese, 50+ Canada Geese, Lawing, Swift, Chiffchaff, Wood Pigeon, Carrion Crow, Rook, Coot, Tufted Duck, Blackbird, Grey Heron, Oystercatcher, House Martin, Little Grebe, Mallard, Swallow, Robin, Little Owl, Long Tailed Tit, Great Tit, Blue Tit, Nuthatch, Jay, Chaffinch, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Treecreeper, Dunnock, Robin, Song Thrush, House Sparrow, Greenfinch, Buzzard, Little Egret, Goldfinch, Lesser Black-backed Gull
See you all on August 6th
