Walk Report 14th April

Weekday Walk – Bordeaux to Miellette 

14 people gathered on a still and sunny morning and enjoyed a lovely amble along the coastal path and returning through the lanes. We didn’t quite make Miellette but had a great morning’s birding, the highlight for many being a Raven’s nest with 4 young.
