Larch Trees

Thursday, November 7th 2013

As you walk along the Sycamore Avenue, the yellow/orange colours of the Larch trees can be seen.

Many of the boughs are covered in small cones.  The seeds inside these cones may provide food for the Crossbills.  Grey Squirrels prefer larger cones from other conifers.

This afternoon, the Lake was busy with Moorhen, Mallard and Kingfisher.  The Kingfisher appeared to be fishing from a perch high up in a tree and from the sandbank, having left the perch put in for him.
