Scrapbook ~ Wildlife walks throughout the year
Tuesday 20th March 2012
Newick - River Ouse - Mount Pleasant - Chailey - Newick
We were blown away by
the beauty of this area and with so much to see and so much history to take in
we were in danger of becoming over-stimulated by the end of our walk. Wildlife
was abundant, especially in the private nature reserve at Knowlands Wood where
we had very close encounters with both Mink and Weasel and later on at
Markstakes Common we encountered large herds of both Fallow Deer and Alpacas!
The whole walk was littered with large, old, country houses of all ages and
every tree and bush seemed to be full of birds. Everything two nosey
birdwatchers could want! The area is so quiet too, apart from the squeals of
Buzzards, the loud explosions of Wren song, the machine gun fire of Nuthatch
calls and incessant Skylark singing that is.
