It was a cold damp November morning when the group met at Denver Sluice hoping that the forecasted rain would keep at bay. We were greeted by Cormorants, Great Crested Grebes and a very obliging Kingfisher which was perching on a reed as we looked along the drain.
Moorhens, Tufted Duck and a friendly Wren made an appearance. As we crossed over the road to look over the fields we were delighted to see a small flock of Yellowhammers in the hawthorn along with Redwing and Redshanks on the flooded fields beyond the hedgerow.
