A Walk along the Pembroke River

From St Anne's we descended to the River and walked along the shoreline - the ice made walking on the previously very muddy surface possible. Pembroke River is a fascinating place - here are the relics of our industrial past: jetties, quarrying, shipbuilding at Jacob's Pill and the ferry at Bentlass. If Natural History is more your thing, the river abounds in bird life - we saw redwings, dunlins, oyster catchers, turnstones, lapwings and lots more. even a pair of spoonbills!
When the weather is more clement (following a prolonged dry spell) we could organise a group walk along here.
