Guided Walk Crowborough Country Park

posted 10 May 2017, 01:42 by Sue Bamblett
What a beautiful morning for a walk. At 7.30 today I joined a group of seven, guided by Martin and accompanied by Dan the Ranger (who also looks after the Ghyll and the Bluebell Woods as well as some other smaller pockets of land). 
We took a stroll through Crowborough Country Park listening and, in my case, attempting to identify bird song. Martin assured us we heard 22 different birds this morning. The most noticeable of these was the Marsh Tit, quite rare nowadays as lots of woodland is not boggy enough, but the right conditions seem to be found at the Country Park. 

My perso
nal highlights were spotting a Blue Jay and watching a Tree Creeper as he crept up a tree swaying in the breeze. To my naked eye he looked rather like a mouse scampering up the trunk. I can highly recommend this event. Book online now if you'd like to join the walks scheduled for 07.00 Saturday 13th May or Tuesday 17th May. Meet at the Country Park Car Park in Osborne Road.
