This afternoon, around 5:30, a Sparrowhawk flew from the park and landed right beside the birdfeeders in my garden. It must have thought a meal would eventually turn up as it stayed there for about five minutes. Anyway, I did manage to get a pretty good photo of it before it flew back into the park.

(I include it in this blog because my garden backs onto the park)

Hedge Trimming Begins

I was in the park yesterday, Saturday, to fill the birdfeeder which was completely empty. It was a joy to find almost the entire garden carpeted with flowers - see pic.

Glendale have begun to trim the hedges along the Cliffview Road side of the park. The first few metres of hedge are trimmed.

Also there's new planting and fences repaired - thanks mainly, I understand, to Keith the Park Keeper.
