The bridleway is drier but the canal meadow track is still muddy and slippery - take your mountain walking stick with you.
But it's worth the walk, just for the autumn view across the lakes from the canal viewpoint.
A good walk is to the riverside and back (at the wetland entrance, turn right and then first left towards the screen) - there are no wetland circular tracks until March. So it's time for the circular meadow trail walk - turn right at the canal viewpoint- wetland entrance.
Contractors have fenced off the wetland west track (canalside) and east track (riverside) beyond Fishers Mill Lake.
You cannot miss the autumn leaves which have fallen recently, along the bridleway, producing nature's carpets of yellow, orange and brown everywhere.
There have been sightings of ..........
mistle thrush, goldcrest (by the canal), rook flocks, jackdaw flocks, starling flocks, redwing (occasional), fieldfare (occasional), kingfisher, raven, little egret, cormorant, water rail, cetti's warbler, pheasant.
Enjoy a glorious autumn day in the wetlands.
