Monday 13th May
7.00 to 9.30
A party of set off from the Cricket Ground and assembled at the bridge over the Goit. A lone Dipper was seen just down from the bridge.
A total of 26 members assembled before walking south down the valley.
Stopped at the first bridge as usual to look up the stream and could see 2 Grey Wagtails feeding between the rocks in the shallow water.
Eventually waited at the gate on left to allow people to catch up. Some walked to Anglezarke Reservoir while waiting.
Returned via the Cycleway and just after 9.00pm heard then saw a single Cuckoo perched on dead stump just below the Quarry. Also a young Stag Roe Deer was seen creeping through the undergrowth just over the Goit.
It was vertually dark when we got back to White Coppice after another successful Cuckoo walk with lots of birds around.
