A Walk to Coate and Back

Sunday dog walk again and today we decided to walk to Coate Water and back. Heading out of the village past the Washpool we saw five Wrens in the first half-mile or so. Also a Grey Wagtail along the stream. There was quite a lot of birdsong to be heard, mainly Robins. Not a great deal of bird interest at Coate with just the usual stuff seen. Two Chiffchaffs were heard chiffchaffing and there were a lot of Moorhens feeding in the large areas of algae on the main lake. Back at home a Red Kite and a Buzzard were circling over the house and late afternoon a number of Swallows and House Martins were feeding high up. A few Brimstones were also seen in the garden.
