|Just to prove I am in England|
After I crossed the weir I added two Ring-necked Parakeet to my year list that flew over my head making a heck of a racket. Green Woodpeckers were abundant in the area, yaffling their way through the Oak trees along with cooing Stock Doves, another year bird!
Just before I reached the bridge to cross over Triggs Lock, which was built in 1653 I believe, I found a flock of 50 Goldfinch feeding on thistles; very cool. The walk back along the river produced Common Buzzard, Kestrel, Canada Goose (tick), Mute Swan, Reed Bunting, Mandarin Duck (stringy tick), Wood Pigeon, Wren and a few others. All in all a very pleasant walk.
