Smestow Valley Wild Walk, November 10th
Seven intrepid nature lovers starting out on a wild walk on a beautiful November morning, with Chris and Geoff from the Smestow Valley Birders leading the way.
The early morning sunlight brought out the autumn colours of the trees by the Railway Walk and Tettenhall Ridge beyond.
A half-hour sky watch done, and time to get on the move.
At Compton Lock, with two little grebes downstream.
Further along the towpath, five song thrushes were at the top of a tree on the other bank.
As we reached Meccano Bridge, we were ready to step out of the shade.
Two little grebes here got most people's attention, but the dog seemed more interested in what I was doing.
The dabchicks were busy fishing ...
and, as usual, staying just a little too far away to pose for a good picture.
The final stop before we all headed for our homes and a hot drink - Freshwater Pool
