Spring Walk

No fooling!

The First of April was a beautiful day, and Kingsley and Broxhead Commons were looking magnificent in the bright sunshine as the church walking group enjoyed their "Spring Saunter."

There was plenty of birdsong too, with Blue Tits, Great Tits, Chiffchaffs, Robin and Wren being frequently heard, along with the occasional Jay, Buzzard, and Green Woodpecker — not to mention one bird whose song none of the group could identify! The walking uphill through the Western Hemlock woods was however eerily quiet — as (surprisingly) were the Guineafowl who scuttled away as we approached Glen Farm.

After a most enjoyable four-and-a-half miles, the group returned to their starting point by Kingsley Pond, which was looking tranquil in the sunshine. A short drive brought them to The Royal Exchange in Lindford, where four others joined for a very satisfying meal and some pleasant conversation.
