Yarner Wood and Trendlebere Down

12.30-16.00

Walk across from Down to Wood produced Cuckoo calling in the distance, calling Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff, a pair of Stonechats, Tree Pipit, several Siskins and a confiding and vocal Redpoll.  

The Wood produced a drake Mandarin, Grey Wagtail, lots of Pied Flycatchers, several Wood Warblers (2 ringed, 1 with yellow ring and another with an orange ring), 3 Mistle Thrush, Great, Blue, Coal, Marsh and Long Tailed Tits, 2 Nuthatch, 4 Raven. Blackcaps, Goldcrest, Treecreepers all calling within the Wood. Roe Deer.

Not a bad walk considering that I had a two and half year old on my shoulders!
