29th August 2020 – Eastville Park, Bristol

This morning we had a walk round our local park – the first time we have been there since the lock down in March. We have avoided the park as the pathways are generally quite congested with a constant flow of cyclists, joggers, dog walkers and others enjoying the nature and the gentle exercise in the fresh air. And it was fresh this morning! It was comforting, however, to see some of the “regulars” although I suppose many of the birds wouldn’t have been born when we went there last time.

The highlight, as always, was the kingfisher even though he was quite difficult to pick out in the gloomy wooded area near the weir.
