Dawn chorus walk

About twenty people were up with the lark on Sunday 29th March to listen out for the dawn chorus in Snuff Mills and Grove Wood. We heard woodpeckers tapping on the trees, magpies and crows squawking as the sun rose and blackbirds celebrating the dawn. The sounds of robins and great tits cheered everyone up even though it was so early.

Walkers went on a circuit of Snuff Mills and then enjoyed Grove Wood, providing further evidence that people use the woods for peaceful pastimes and so it should be designated a Town Green!
