Flora and Fauna at Kintra 5th August 2011

It was an energetic ramble today with one family with three children and two others joining us. The river was crossable this time and the highlights were the Red-throated Divers and Merlin. The Wild Thyme was also a favourite, reminding us of the stuffing we eat with chicken!
