Old Lodge Walk – 22nd October 2017

Six Group members went on the Old Lodge walk yesterday morning. Though the wind was a bit brisk, and the temperature a bit low, we managed to find a few good birds.  As well as the usual forest birds, we were pleased to see a raven, cronking as it flew over us. A Dartford warbler was heard as we walked downhill towards the stream, and on the edge of the Reserve, we came across a flock of small birds which included long tailed, great and blue tits,  at least two Marsh tits, a nuthatch,  a goldcrest, and a foraging chiffchaff.
