Loved the walk on kingfisher trail. Good exercise and a great view when up there luckily it was a cool day. Can imagine would be hot in summer

Really should have done this earlier in the morning, it was quite hot and sticky although the walk was very enjoyable. Would have loved a guide to show us around and explain some birdlife and trees.
