So normally a squirrel will sleep at night in a Drey as shown left. It would be built out of twigs and leaves with possibly some lichen for bedding. Every year they will built a new nest and they may move on early if insects take over. So when I saw the picture below just as the sun set I was slightly surprised, I did not expect the squirrel to go to sleep on a bare branch as by this time in autumn its Drey should be built. I can only think that the high winds and heavy rains have destroyed its Drey and I hope it had a good nights sleep after I came snapping away.
Birds, they make up the park as these are the most common things you can see. There are many different birds that live in the park from the common to the extremely rare. I'm glad to say on my recent walk at about 3 o'clock I found at the top of Warren farm a spectacular amount of small birds among the trees, some of which I have had to ask keen birder friends to identify. I also managed to see so many of the parakeets flying back to the park in time to roost for the night.
I managed to see the robins (three together), jays, green woodpeckers, greenfinches and a few unidentified birds which were even more amazing. I also bring the news that the other night I was fortunate enough to see a little owl.
Which path would you take? The path which is lush green or the path where you have steady gravel ground? The path towards a few grey clouds or the Path towards blue skies?
Recently I noticed this tree up by the floodlights in Warren farm, I think it is a really good idea at tackling the hanging poo bag problems, the aim is to show the difference between things looking nice hanging on a tree to absolutely alful bags which take forever to biodegrade.
