Conyer Creek Walk - Tomorrow 18th March - Cancelled

Unfortunately, the weather forecast for tonight and tomorrow is anything but encouraging.

With possibly heavy snow expected overnight and in the early hours of tomorrow, we believe that the safest option is to cancel tomorrow's walk.

Have a nice weekend,

March Bird of the Month - Rock Pipit

March Bird of the Month - Rock Pipit

Sexes are similar with streaked dark grey-brown upperparts and grubby whitish underparts which are heavily streaked on the breast and flanks. The throat is pale and there is a faint white eye-ring. Legs and bill are dark and the outer tail feathers are grey.

The call is a single slurred "phist".

The female rock pipit builds a hair-lined nest of moss and fine seaweed, on the ground in a rock cavity. Four to five eggs are laid between April and July and both parents feed the young on small beetles, flies and larvae. They fledge after approximately sixteen days. Further info can be found by clicking in the link below.

A reliable local site to catch up with this species is Conyer Creek (Me9 9HR) so why not join us on Sunday 18 March at 9.30am when we're holding a free guided walk led by Giuseppe Raffa.
