Today’s lunchtime spots

It’s hard to believe it was snowing yesterday isn’t it? There’s still a chill in the air, but a nice warm Spring sun making you believe it’s the end of March again.

Today’s lunchtime trip to Weston and Crookes Valley Parks included some good views of a small flock of Treecreepers in Weston Park, which were making their weird high-pitched bubbling calls and crawling around the branches in a way that always reminds me in a strange way of giant, crawling insects.

I also saw my first Rabbits there, scurrying about by the margins of Crookes Valley Park, not far from the children’s playground. There was also the usual birds, including Long-tailed Tits, Blue Tits, Greenfinches, Mallards, Moorhens, Blackbirds, Carrion Crows, Magpies, Woodpigeons, Robins and a Wren, and of course loads of squirrels.
