Otter Valley

Having cleaned the DB Hide on the east bank and carried away another bag of bottles and litter I took a walk up the valley on the west footpath towards the aqueduct where I found two Cattle Egrets with a 200 strong herd of cows.  (Not to be confused with two other smaller herds).  Likely to be the same birds as seen by Chris T yesterday. Probably best seen from the river path.

Lots of small birds in the trees along the 'Little Otter' including several Treecreeper, Blackcap, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff and others.
