Rea Valley TODAY - BROCKLEY GROVE
|Cannon Hill Meadow|
Here I briefly sunbathed with a squirrel as a male Sparrowhawk glides through in hunting mode. The crows stir.
Perhaps it's a youngster as little else seems concerned.
Brockley Grove was once a garden area, between the 1940's and 70's, now it is overgrown and lush, providing good and largely undisturbed cover.
Badgers abound and the sett is prominent.
Here we hear and see bullfinches abundant together with a variety of other woodland species.
