Trimpley Reservoir and Severn walk to Arley

Today we drove with friends to beautiful Worcestershire countryside near to Kidderminster. It was cold, the sky was blue and clear, yet in the sunshine it felt warm. We parked at the edge of the Wyre Forest at Eymore wood car park.

 

 

We made our way down through the trees crossing the Severn valley railway line, to the water’s edge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fortunately  we saw a couple of steam trains on the line, along the side of the reservoir and over the

River Severn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We continued walking, until we reached the beautiful village of Arley,  which has a shop, a pub and a railway station.

 

 

 

 

We sat and enjoyed a coffee and cake, then we wandered back along the river and up through the woods to the car park.

Upton Warren Nature reserve

On a cold frosty day we decided to visit the nature reserve again. Most of the birding activity was on the saline pools of the Flashes.

Stewart Hall Nice black swan John.
Think you got Brambling, Long tailed Tit, nice one of great tit with a seed in it’s beak. Lots of other stuff too.
