As we get out of the car, the calls of pinkfoot fill the air and a flock in V formation of around 100 fly high on their south migration.
There is a group of about 20 Common Scoters not too far offshore, feeding in the calm water. They do the sequential diving as Tufted ducks do, one after the other. The whole flock disappearing for a few seconds and then appearing one after the other.
At the bottom, they are joined by a Redshank, keen to feed on the tideline.
The Yorkshire Belle passing by.
After lunch, we head back through the path in the woods. The woodland has large beech, ash and sycamore, with a few garden ornamentals around the car park such as an Araucaria.
A view of the wooded ravine.
The woodland floor was very dry, even under logs. We only found five large White-legged Snake Millipede, Tachypodoiulus niger, on a decomposing log.
Back to the other side of the ravine across the bridge.
