Gorpley Clough (RIGS)

The walk was led by Linda through intermittent light rain and sunny spells up the clough to the reservoir and back.
Very few birds were seen or heard due to the rain and noisy stream. However we did have a dipper near the car park. Others included swallow, swift, pied wag, black bird, wren, robin, meadow pipit, skylark and Canada goose.
An as yet, unidentified fungus was found. Possibly Pholiota sp.
