Nature Walk – close to home

Today’s nature walk with Miles Hearn took place close to home at Sam Smith Park, a local hotspot for birdwatchers. The birds did not disappoint. Miles counted 42 species in all. I’ve been keeping a list of all the species identified in 2019, either on these walks or on my own. So far, I’m at 92 species.
