Walk Report – Saumarez Park and Heritage Trail – 14th June 2022

The weather was fine and sunny when 9 people gathered at Saumarez Park at 10.00 a.m. It was decided that we would walk the Heritage Trail first and then the park paths at the end. Strolling through the trees along the walk provided shade from the hot sun but also gave the bird life plenty of cover.

Blackbird (Turdus merula)

Blackcap (Sylvia atricapilla)

Buzzard (Buteo buteo)

Carrion Crow (Corvus corone)
