Kielder forest

Next day we decided to pay a visit to Kielder Forest in Northumberland first headed to to the area by the castle which seems to be a torist trap even the walks around the castle but once we got off the main trains and to the nature trails further along by Kielder Water it was lovely and peaceful with birds singing  and in the hide overlooking the water quite a few birds going  about there lifes with Common Sandpipers, Goosander and Greylags Geese around and then we decided to walk one of the woodland trails in the hope of seeing one of the red squirrels on the woodland trail  but no luck with the squirrel but had quite a few tree pipits and the odd redstart and a low flying Buzzard over this charming landscape.
