    Hello, I did the recce for the first “A” walk of the season yesterday. Glorious sunshine and the good news that most of the way is mud free. However I recommend you bring your sticks along as there are a few “sticky bits” 😎
    Lots of wildlife, saw weasel, hare, salmon, buzzard,reed bunting, dipper and a flash of kingfisher as well as the usual spring songbirds all along the beautiful river Coquet.
