In the river next to Rothbury car park was this Goosander.
The next stop was Rothbury Family Butchers whose steak and kidney pies are simply the best together with their fresh baked pastries.
Further up the valley was a large thrush flock taking advantage of the berry harvest.
At Harwood I was pleased to watch two Red Squirrel by the roadside
In a field just south of the forest was a very large flock of what I believe to be thrushes but they were quite distant
A buzzard dropped out of the forest into the roadside hedge and out of sight as if by magic.
