I saw this tree on my walk today. It appears to be dead but I expect it is teaming with insects, bugs and creepy-crawlies. Judging by the damage to the bark I think the birds have been enjoying the bounty.
I’m tempted to buy some grass and flower seeds to spread on the verge of the footpath. It’s like a ploughed field!
We had a nice walk down through the beauty spot and saw some ducks on the pond. Nice sunny day and away from the traffic and fumes.
