Lawrencefield, Padley – Thu 13/5/21

Date: 13/5/2021 Meeting Point: Road side parking SK258800 on the Grindleford – Foxhouse Road (see maps below – usually a few cars there already) Time: 08:30 Transport: Members cars Cost: free Leader: Martin Kaye Numbers Limit: None.

The first part involves about a mile of easy walking around Lawrencefield Moor, then down into the upper section of Padley Gorge.  We then return to the cars giving the option of an early departure.

The target species on the moor include Cuckoo and Tree Pipit while in the Gorge we would hope to see Redstart, Pied and Spotted Flycatcher and if we’re lucky, Wood Warbler.  There should also be many other more common woodland birds.
