Denholme Clough

Friday 15th May a.m.
A wonderful start to the day with blue skies & plenty sunshine with a temperature of 6°C as we headed through Denholme Clough. We were greeted with a Chiffchaff singing which we caught a brief glimpse of, as we went along the path at the side of the beck a Dipper flew past.On the other side of the valley a Jay was keeping an eye on passers by briefly breaking cover for a snap.Further along we saw a Grey Wagtail in the distance & eight Sand Martins were over head.There were also plenty of Willow Warblers around singing as was a couple of Wrens.When we reached Doe Park reservoir it was very quiet with just a couple of Mallards & a Moorhen seen.The highlight of the walk back was when a couple of Deer went across the beck.
