I’ve stayed indoors the past two days as it’s been very cold, wet and windy. It’s still cold today but calm and sunny so I went for a much needed walk through the nearby ecology park, my allotment site and the local park.
I was pleased to see a jay and a some long-tailed tits in the ecology park. Looking round the plot I was relieved, as always, to see that all was okay after the high winds. I didn’t linger but crossed the road and headed for the local park where the hornbeam I’ve been tree following this year is. The pond and wetland area is temporarily fenced off whilst a much needed all-weather path is being laid, as well as other work, so I couldn’t see the ducks. There were plenty of gulls out on the open grass areas and a pair of squawking parakeets in one of the willows along the stream edge.
I was back home in just under an hour where the first thing I did was to make a warming cup of tea.
Apologies there are no pictures as I didn’t take a camera with me. Here are two Flighty’s favourites pot marigolds from early July, which I may have shown before.
Take care, and have a good week!
