Midweek Walk - Calver

Adult male siskin on feeder

Wednesday, 11 November 2015

We set off on a dull but unusually warm morning, and started our list while standing on the bridge across the River Derwent with Grey Wagtail and Dipper. 

Later on, we encountered flocks of Fieldfare, Redwing, Goldfinch and Siskin - along with brief views of Great Spotted Woodpecker, Treecreeper, Nuthatch and Mistle Thrush. By the river at Froggatt, we were privileged to have good views of a Water Vole - a fitting end to a very pleasant autumnal walk.
