River Weaver, Winsford

Last weekend we headed up to Winsford to stay at Tina's Sisters for a few days, we went for a couple of walks along the river Weaver and a longer walk around the Sandiway Lakes nearby. Followed by a day out to South Stacks on Anglesey.

Jo's Garden and the river resulted in a good number of garden and woodland birds, Finches, Tits, Great Spotted Woodpecker, Nuthatch and Pheasant whilst the river walks added Heron (quite a large Heronry near her house), Cormorant, Great Crested Grebe, plus the usual Black-headed Gulls and other water fowl:

 On one of the walks through the woods we discovered a pair of Buzzards nesting, great to see
A big surprise though was when I nearly trod on a grass snake on the riverside path, it then slithered into the river, just about managed to get this as it swam away:
