Broadcroft Quarry Lane, Pools, Bumpers Lane, Mermaid Track, Rufus Castle, St Andrew's Church, Penns Wood and Bottom Combe Quarry.

Another sunny day, but a lot lot colder. Not a lot around with just 2 Chiffchaffs heard and several Robins recorded along my walk. A large flock (charm) of 50+ Goldfinches was a bit of a surprise, as they flew over me and landed in the trees on Bumpers Mound.

Elsewhere a Kestrel over Penns Weare and just two butterflies seen a Red Admiral and a Peacock in the back garden.

Here are a few images from my late afternoon walk.
