Friday 16th March. Sence Valley Ibstock

5 ladies and 2 Gentlemen plus Dandar the dog arrived at Sence Valley suitably garbed for deep puddles and muddy tracks, The weather was fine after early morning rain and as predicted part of the walk was very muddy with frequent puddles. We walked for about an hour and did 1 3/4 miles. We saw a heron, some swans building a nest and some cormorants sunning themselves. Much to our surprise the sun even shone. After the walk 4, without the dog, adjourned to the cafe at Cattows farm for a hot drink and cake.
