A nature picture
(First rule was no picking flowers, only collect ones on the floor so no flowers were harmed!!)
This past Saturday we stayed after the class and explored around the park a little, despite it not being too far from where I grew up i've never been here until recently. The sound of a Woodpecker drumming followed us around but we never quite managed to spot it. We did see plenty of the usual birds - Magpie, Song Thrush, Crows, Woodpigeons, Great and Blue Tits, a Nuthatch, Goldfinch and overhead circling Red Kites.
Whilst we were on our way out we came across a group, with several children who were litter picking the park, it is well looked after and does have play parks too, though we didn't come across those in our walk. Even with a cricket pitch (with it's small cafe/bar our base for the classes) and skate park there is still plenty to walk around.
Lots of bugs were sunning themselves
Blue Tit playing hide and seek!
I can't seem find any information on birds that have been seen so I guess it's an unwatched spot - in that nobody posts records online at least? It'd be interesting to see what else is found here.
