End of Year Walk

Walked with my daughter and Ted our dog to Stockers along the main road,it was damp,dismal  and foggy as we reached Inn's GP, we noted a good number of Wigeon on the ice as we moved over the Colne bridge,and a few fisherman were braving the elements as well one had caught a 4lb Chub.On adjacent Stockers two goosander were present as was a splendid pair of goldeneye,moving down the river another female goosander obliged as did a brief view of a kingfisher.
Arrived at Bury GP where a number of birders were crossing the causeway in search of avian delights,we stopped for tea at the cafe in the park then returned canal side of Stockers noting a single nuthatch and four red crested pochards,as dusk descended we walked home via drayton ford and the Uxbridge road.
