CWP monthly walk for November

For the second month in a row the rain stopped on the stroke of 9 O'clock!

We headed out in the hope of seeing winter thrushes like fieldfare and redwing and we were not disappointed. They too were taking the opportunity to get out and about after the rain!

Amongst the water birds seen were 16 little egret positioned around the same lake, looking for chances to snaffle a late breakfast.

Duck were also present in good numbers with pochard, tufted duck, mallard, wigeon , teal, gadwall and shoveler seen well allowing us time to look at the males and in particular the females and talk about the different ways to identify them.

The hedgerows were also full of other species like chiffchaff, goldcrest, bullfinch and song thrush.

The next walk is on Saturday 2nd December, starting at 9am at the Waterhay car park at the Cotswold Water Park. Its only £10 per person.

We hope to see you there!h
