Evening Walk through Roddlesworth Woods

Post by Jed Kirkham » Thu May 17, 2018 9:55 pm

Fine evening, almost cloudless, calm, good visibility and cooling down towards sunset. 10 in the group. Walked between 1900-2100 hrs from Tockholes, through the woods and a circuit of the reservoir.
Birds seen/heard: GS Woodpecker, Chaffinch,Blackbird, Robin , Chiffchaff, Blackcap (2), Woodpigeon, Song Thrush, Carrion Crow, Grey Wagtail, BH Gulls, Cuckoo, Mallard, Wren, Nuthatch, Swallow (1) (no other hirundines/swifts), Willow Warbler, Magpie, Curlew & Dunnock.
No bats, probably a bit early.
Water Shrew seen.
I now know what a Horse's Hoof fungi looks like so it was very successful.
Thanks all.
