17th October 2020 – Severn Estuary

It was a dull day, but not too cold, for our walk along the Severn Estuary near Arlingham.

All it needed was a few rays of sunshine to brighten up these autumn colours around this house in Newnham
Lots of interesting things to see along the banks of the River Severn

As well as lots of gulls on the estuary we came across a male and female stonechat. The female was then replaced by a meadow pipit who continued to “chat” up the male stonechat.

We came home via Gloucester and had a look at the river from the other bank at Newnham.
