|A couple of wood pigeons feeding in one of the horse paddocks.|
|A distant Stock dove, the first I have seen for a while.|
|Also a single Black-headed gull , again in one of the horse paddocks.|
|Rowan or Mountain ash.|
There is a surfaced bridal way that borders the North East corner of the reserve , and can be followed all the way to Newton Rigg collage and passes under the M6 motorway. For most part it is bordered by horse paddocks,and at one point there is a gravelled drive leads off to some horse stables. Part way along this drive I could see a tree loaded with fruit, on closer inspection they turned out to be Plums, and again a very good crop, how they came to be planted where they are is a mystery.
|Yum Yum, I think I'll be back.|
