Local Walk

Wednesday April 11th a.m.
 We took the dog for a walk on the Northern Trail to Hewenden and then back into the village
and home, sunshine and light showers with the temperature at 5°C. There were a good number
of birds about this morning at the side of the reservoir were Canadas,Cormorant,Grey Heron and
a pair of Oystercatchers took to the air flying off towards Denholme. There was what from distance,
Hewenden Viaduct, a Greylag with the Canadas. Plenty other species seen totalling 25 some of
which were Blue Tits,Dunnock,Collard Dove,Jackdaw,Long-tailed Tit,Greenfinch,Goldfinch,Mute
Swan and Wren. Also when we got back there was a male Bullfinch on the garden feeder and a
female eating the buds on the Plum tree, my dad didn't seem too happy about that.
