Autumn views

After rediscovering the House Sparrows, I wandered around the park enjoying the autumnal air.

Near the tennis courts I discovered a spot where at least four London landmarks can be seen between the trees - the Shard, the Gherkin (Swis Re), Canary Wharf and the Dome (O2)

The Sparrows Return

Great news, the House Sparrows are back.  I counted ten in the hedge behind Cliffview Road last Wednesday (10 Nov), that's my first sighting of them in Hilly Fields for three months.
