Family afternoon

We decided to go to Hungerford for the afternoon. After having a sarnie on the common we walked along the canal to the town. A few birds were about , the best being a Kingfisher which gave us great views as it flew low along the water. An hour or so was spent in the town and on the return walk Wren, Bullfinch and Red Kite were seen. A quick stop was made at Chilton Foliat where several dozen Swallows and a few House Martins were skimming low over the wide water. Also here were eight Gadwall and a couple of Little Grebe. Final birding of the day was a few minutes scanning Liddington from the window at home with a couple of Buzzards, a Kestrel and a Heron seen over the Castle.
