In case you missed it, we enjoyed a fascinating wander amongst the trees last Saturday, discovering so much about the Park’s treasured trees and habitats. Following that successful walk, John Denton will be leading a butterfly walk this Saturday.
He aims to help you:
1) Identify the summer butterflies in the park.
2) Try to observe the differences between the sexes.
3) Link their behaviour to the different habitats in the park.
Meet by the carpark notice board. Route will be off and on the paths, so please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to help us accommodate mobility issues. This is a very much a weather dependent walk, and if the forecast is for heavy cloud, rain or showers it will not take place.
FSP would like to thank Stuart Banks very much for an entertaining wander through the park on the morning of 30 April for nearly two hours. The walk was well attended on a beautiful, bright Saturday and once we got our eye in the birds appeared; everything from a long-tailed tit to a kestrel. And of course there were the local parakeets in full song.
The bird population is very active right now so get out and have a listening walk through the park yourself.
New notice board
We are also grateful to a member of the Management Committee, Ron Senkus, for bringing the carpark notice board back to life. And it will take decades for this one to go weak at the legs!
Please note, and tell others you may see, that this board and the other Park notice boards are only for Park events or other local environmental/leisure community events. Commercial advertising will be removed.
Start the day with something different and invigorating! Join our bird walk on Saturday 30 April led by Stuart Banks, an active member of the RSPB and local resident. Nesting season has begun and there is plenty of birdlife to discover this month.
