There was no shortage of mud on today’s 5½ mile walk from Hascombe. Twenty-one of us met at the car park opposite The White Horse. We set off east on the bridleway that passed next to the pub and then turned south on the footpath that went round Hascombe Hill. In less than five minutes we were deep in mud.

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.
