Old Park Wood

Old Park Wood Foreshore

        A half day available today so a short walk beside the Leven estuary, from the shore at Old Park Wood. I've been to the car park before, but never explored the area properly. We walked along the shore, which is a carpet of sea washed turf.  Having stopped and watched Eiders and Shelducks whilst eating our butties, we continued below the limestone cliffs and woodland. We explored the cave, which is marked on the 1:25000 map, but we were surprised by its size. Our route continued round Capes Head and made our way back to the car through the woodland, seeing a Roe Deer at close quarters. The day was very humid, and eventually at about 4.30pm it started to rain! Quite a novelty after such a long dry spell.
