Brydekirk to Annan River Walk

Rob and I decided to go for a slightly longer walk today - a six mile circular walk from Brydekirk to Annan along the banks of the River Annan, and back. The directions for the walk can be found on page 14, option C of the Annan Walking Booklet.

 We saw many different bird species, including herons (one shown below), dippers, mallards, goosander (I think!), and the usual smaller birds.


This is the Jubilee Suspension Bridge, one of four bridges along this stretch of the river.

 
There were carpets of wildflowers in the woods and fields along the way. Lots of wood anemones, bluebells, forget-me-nots (below) and more.

We stopped in Annan for a coffee and a sit down before starting on the return journey to Brydekirk, on the opposite river bank, passing through the Park in Annan.
