February Walk and Catch-Up

It was a dull day for our February walk with drizzle in the air, and our expectations for keeping dry weren’t high!

However as we left Beechern Wood car park and headed over Whitemoor the drizzle had gone and we enjoyed chatting to each other as we went along.

We stopped briefly to look at a flock of Fieldfares and Redwings up ahead of us. We could also also hear a Song Thrush singing and Julia remembered Robert Browning’s poem “Home thoughts from abroad” in which he describes it thus,
‘That’s the wise thrush; he sings each song twice over,
Lest you think he could never recapture the first fine careless rapture’.

We paused as we crossed Puttles Bridge

We walked through the woods

Walking parallel with the River Ober ….

We headed back over the third bridge

We noticed a nice herd of ponies on the move.

As we got back to the car park we were amazed and relieved that it had stayed dry for our walk and catch-up.

We look forward to walking in the spring weather soon!
