That's Ipsley Alders, the Worcs Trust reserve. Ipsley (Mill) Pool is downstream from Arrow Valley Lake accessed off... a road whose name escapes me 😣

Found Ipsley Lake. ...Redditch is worse than Milton Keynes...lol

No Woodpecker but had a Kingfisher fly quite high over the trees where the LSW had been across the Arrow and off I think north......
The real surprise was at least 12 Turtles basking on logs....large and a few little ones....must be breeding !!!!
Are they classed as vermin ?.

I haven't seen a Kingfisher at the pool for quite some months, and the turtles seem to thriving.
