Into The Gorge

The River Cesse in full flow through the Gorge

Today we spent and hour or so walking in the Cesse Gorge in the beautiful village of Minerve. As usual there were hordes of Blackcaps feeding in the sunshine.  We found no Alpine Accentors or indeed Wallcreepers but we did get a glimpse of a male Blue Rock Thrush on the village rooftops.

I also checked out Lac de Jouarres but could only find 60 Mallard and 8 Great Crested Grebes.  On the way home a Green Woodpecker on the side of a telegraph pole was a bit of a surprise.
