Hardwicke & Elmore

Tuesday 17th July 2007

Along the canal towpath this evening south of The Pilot (the towpath has re-opened after the recent closure) 1-2 Kingfishers, a pair of Blackcaps, a Reed Warbler singing briefly and a Chiffchaff. Among the canal-side flora, Broad-leaved Everlasting Pea (one of the many garden escapes to be found in this area) is in flower along this stretch of the towpath at the moment, as well as a host of native species including Pyramidal Orchid, Tall Melilot, Tufted Vetch, Wild Basil, Agrimony, Spear Thistle and Wild Carrot. A Little Owl was at Elmore. (Photos of female Kingfisher and Broad-leaved Everlasting Pea: © Paul Masters)
