Hugh's Walks Daventry CP

Thursday 3 rd September, Hugh, John, Richard, Tricia and myself (Ken) met at Daventry Country Park for a stroll around the reservoir.  
The wind was a bit chilly crossing the dam, but once in the shelter of the trees it became more pleasant.  There were the usual gulls and odd 
heron, great crested grebe, tufted duck, wigeon and coot first thing  Hugh could hear skylarks and bullfinch early on but these were not 
seen.  Robins & blackbirds were constantly around as were crows and pigeons.  We eventually spent some time overlooking the scrape on the far 
side, where we found three snipe, two green sandpipers, shovellers, numerous gulls, tufted duck and wigeon - the call of the latter is a 
wonderful sound.  We met Garry Pullen (I hope I've got his name right) who could not add to our sightings on the far bank. Continuing on 
long-tailed, coal and blue tits, together with several good sightings of those adorable goldcrests.  We eventually made our way back to the 
car park through some lovely autumn settings.
Thanks once again to Hugh for arranging the walk and the others for making a very enjoyable morning.

Looks like you chose a really nice day and had a lovely autumnal walk Ken. Thanks for this.

If any other members have something they would like to be posted on the site just let me know.  Robin.
