Wittering walk

Despite the wet weather of the previous weeks today 15 walkers turned out for a repeat of the 7 mile walk made last autumn.

The day started with cloud but bright outlook and we were soon walking in the woods which still had a carpet of bluebells in them and in some parts were competing for space with the smell of the wild garlic plants..

Looking away from the woods many fields of yellow could be seen, lots of oil seed rape to effect hay fever sufferers in the warmer weather in the summer.

A coffee stop was made and red kites were seen flying above our heads.

As we continued the walk through the woods the clouds became darker, would we avoid any showers.

Our dinner stop came and quick refreshments eaten and then it was only a short walk left to return to the start. Towards the end we found a large area covered in and smelling of wild garlic.
