At Creek Copse we turned right on a bridleway and headed downhill through more mud before turning left (north) on another bridleway near Nore. This bridleway had a hard surface so we had a short respite from mud. Reaching a minor road we turned right and walked along this (feeling grateful for the tarmac) to turn left at a junction near Selhurst Common. This road passed by the entrance to Wintershall and came to a dead end at the Greensand Way. Along this stretch of road we saw a red kite flying overhead. It circled round slowly giving us a good view of its plumage and forked tail.
We turned left (south) on the GSW and continued on this back to Hascombe.
