While strolling around the park at lunchtime I was amazed to see the number of people inhaling nitrous oxide. Some were doing it in circles on the grass and others while sat on benches. I know that the practice is legal and I don't care what young people do in their spare time but are there any bye-laws covering this particular pursuit in the park?
A good turn-out for the first walk of the autumn and a warm welcome to those who attended for the first time. There were no surprises bird-wise, but it was a pleasure to be out in such nice weather. The list is as follows:
Wren - a couple in rather subdued song
Robin - at least 1 seen and 4 or 5 singing around the park
Dunnock - a couple seen and heard
Blackbird - a few seen
