This morning I decided to walk the Top Bridge trail. It was the first time this spring I had done that and I wasn't disappointed. There is a good selection of both deciduous and coniferous forest to walk through, plus access points to the river and and open scrub. There was a great selection of birds with two new species added for the year; Willow Flycatcher and a pair of Spotted Sandpiper ,who displayed right in front of me as I was taking notes.
