After some recent wet days, at last a dry day. However, a bitterly cold north wind greeted us instead. 15 keen souls set off for a road walk to Brackenfield and back. The walk started well with a high flying Red Kite above the sailing club, unfortunately not seen by all. It was noticeable that not a single winter thrush was recorded during the walk.
Nonetheless, everyone had a nice walk and between us we bagged 41 species.
