Nature walk part one

Hi All,
 I have had to split this one up as there is so much to tell. First Berengrave Nature reserve is just that not a country park, all that is maintained is the pathways and to keep the lake clear. For this reason in the summer  there is not much to see. Across the road is another part of this reserve. This lead to the old Rainham Dock. It is a little better with made up paths. You can wonder onto unmade paths and one of these take you to a hide.


View through the Hide

 All I saw at this point was a few Doves and Pigeon's nothing else.

I forgot to say that I parked in the Motley Hill car park and walked across the road. I had no idea that I was not in Riverside until I got to the other end when the sign said Berengrave.

Off the path on into some of the clearing are some unusual plant, some I have never seen before.

No idea what this is

or this

It can be a bit of a nightmare going of the main path as this shows.

Fallen tree, path goes round it

 After I got back on the main path I found myself on the Lower Rainham Road. I turned round and made my way back to Motley Hill.


That is it for today, the rest of the trip tomorrow.

Oh one shot before I go for Daisy and Holly

One dog swimming the other paddling
