Leaving the Broad Beans behind us we walked down Whitfield Lane. There are some fabulous old buildings on this single track road.

One home had a block and tackle high above us, perhaps it was once a mill?

The road levelled out, and we did a sharp right walking through a field with cattle and sheep, before getting alongside the River Ouse.

Thankfully these Mute Swans weren’t in the least aggressive as I took my photo.  A noisy Reed Warbler could be heard calling from the opposite bank.

Along the route I also spotted Yellowhammer, Pied Wagtail, Magpies, Jackdaws, Blackbird, Song Thrush and Pheasant.

There were probably a few other species, but not as many as I’d expected.

We also walked along the line of the Greenwich Meridian, but the brief introduction to the Ouse Valley Way was of greater interest.

Here’s hoping  we have a good summer, and get a chance to explore some more.
