I walked across a field and through a small stretch of wood, to appear at the top of the bank. The view was breathtaking, with chalk grassland stretching down to Radnage in the valley below and the rolling Chiltern hills sweeping all around, topped off by the autumnal colours of the Beech woodland. Best of all a Robin was singing it's heart out in a nearby bush and several Red Kites were gliding around overhead. Then 2 Buzzards flew past me and headed off along the bank and something (I think it was a fox) ran up through the hedge next to me and disappeared off into the woods. All this before I had even taken my first step onto the bank!

A family of Long Tailed Tits flew along through the trees with me for a while as I walked. I could hear them twittering and see them dashing around and they seemed quite happy to follow along with me. I also saw a couple of Jays fly into the woods and disappear amongst the trees.
At the end of the woods, I came out onto the grassland and walked bank along the bank to where I had started. There were still lots of wild flowers in bloom.
