Kinver Canal

The weather was pretty good Tuesday so we headed out to do one of our favourite walks to Kinver along the canal adjacent to the River Stour.

Our list of birds is what you might expect for a canal walk, although we did manage 3 birds of prey, Buzzard, Kestrel and our first Sparrowhawk of the year. Sadly none provided the opportunity for a photo. Four types of Tit were seen, Blue, Great, Long-Tail & Coal. Another year first was a Song Thrush:

Towards the end of the walk, we saw our first Goldcrests of 2015, three of them were flitting around, but just wouldn't stop long enough for me to focus on them, I did manage to get the backside of one of them though!
That is if you can find it in the above photo.
So now just a few photos to cover the walk of which the Goosander was the highlight, although the Moorhen having a splash was nice to watch.
