Tuesday 16 April – Hanham Mills Leader: Karen Birmingham

Thirty walkers set out on a bright and breezy day through woodland full of wood anemones, wild garlic and bluebells, and then back along the River Avon past the heronry. Thirty six bird species were seen or heard including a Treecreeper feeding its mate, Nuthatch, Goldfinch, Greenfinch, Song Thrush, Moorhen, Buzzard, ten Mallard ducklings and, of course, the Grey Herons. Surprisingly there were no Cormorants to be seen but we did watch a roe deer sitting peacefully in a field, unperturbed by us walkers. (Thanks to Karen for leading). Karen Birmingham
