Bird Walks
Two days, two bird walks. Thirty of you turned up for Sunday's walk, fewer of you got up for Saturday's one.
But we saw plenty - all the usual suspects - Great Tits, Blue Tits, Crows, Wood Pigeons, Feral Pigeons, Blackbirds, Robins, Mistle Thrushes and a Jay or two. And we finished with look at the newts in the pond.


 
Star Gazing II
Well it was much warmer for our second Star Gazing event of the year - but also much cloudier. Too cloudy to see anything in fact. Other than the moon which briefly appeared through the clouds, and possibly just to its right, Venus. But hopefully you picked up some tips to have a go without us. Let us know how you get on!
 
Bird Watching Weekend
Well neither day was great for us humans - Saturday was very cold and Sunday was just wet and miserable - but that didn't seem to deter the birds. The Jays came out and put on a show both days - especially Sunday. And we saw both Green and Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers at different times. The usual suspects of Pigeons and Crows and Magpies, Blue and Great Tits, Blackbirds all popped along too. And not forgetting the Robin right at the end on Sunday who came right over and made one little chaps day! Thanks to everyone for coming along and enjoying the Birds - and the Park!
 
Star Gazing I

Boy was it cold for our first Star Gazing event of the year! (we have another coming up in early February 2017). But 38 of us, and a well-behaved dog, turned up to admire the night sky above the park - we saw the Moon (and even craters on it if we used our binoculars), and Venus and Mars too, along with lots of stars - many of them too small for my tired eyes. But everyone seemed to enjoy themselves before heading home for a nice warm drink!
