This was one of my own walks through the enchanting Loder valley. Access is limited to 50 persons per day, which is perhaps why the wild life is so prolific. The deer watched us from across the water with almost a mutual interest until it ran off. The number of bird species cheek by jowl is rare to see outside of an RSPB reserve. We made no attempt to hide and the birds ignored us. One Lapwing flew off from this group as we watched.
It would be magical to lead a MSRA walk through here in Spring.
