Back to Church Repair Fund

Photographs from the Bird Walk Activity on Sunday 16 June 2019

 

This walk and talk was conducted by Adam Davison from the AONB. Once again the weather was bad – it was cold and windy. However, over 20 people turned up and we walked along the narrow roads around Chivelstone, the Church and down a narrow, fairly muddy lane called Orchard Lane. At every opportunity Adam stopped to explain which birds were singing and often what they were saying: “a little bit of cheese” or “chiff chaff”. Adam knew lots of expressions for their sounds. He was able to hear the birds singing far more than those of us on the walk, but we all stopped to try and hear. This was an extremely good activity – it appealed to everyone and Adam’s approach just made it so enjoyable. Everyone said they would definitely come again.
