The roof and a redwing

Last week I reported on the repairs to the Stableblock roof at Parke and how this was benefiting a large colony of lesser horseshoe bats – see here.

Roof1Yesterday the builders came and dismantled the scaffolding which had been in place for over 3 months – so here is a picture of the repaired roof with new slates and no scaffolding!

I appreciate that this isn’t perhaps the most exciting or photogenic blog posting ever but I am really pleased the work has been done and completed! As a result I enclose a couple of pictures of redwings – one of our winter species of thrush.

Redwing1Currently at Parke you can see them most days feeding in the Parkland

Redwing2Lovely white eyestripe and the red flanks – usually seen in flocks of a dozen birds plus
