Tuesday 08 July – Frampton Cotterell

 Twenty five members, including two new ones, met at the Globe Inn, Frampton Cotterell on a very overcast but warm morning. Before we set off up along the Frome Valley the leader warned everyone about the possibility of ticks – fortunately none were encountered. By the time we reached the coffee stop it had really warmed up and the sun was out. Along the riverbank we had all spotted the lovely yellow and grey of the Grey Wagtail and a singing Song Thrush. Near the end of the walk some heard and others saw a Yellowhammer and even a Goldcrest was spotted – making a total of 25 species for the day. A very enjoyable walk that also included various butterflies, damsel flies and many wild flowers. Thanks to Peter for leading. Dave Body
