On Monday 29 March the COVID-19 rules were eased to allow groups of up to six people, from any number of households to gather in parks and gardens and it was not long before some of our U3A groups were enjoying the relaxation of restrictions … including the Crochet, Birdwatching and Singing for Fun groups …
Six members of the Crochet Group met on an unseasonably warm late March day in the Convener’s garden to get down to some serious work, while on a cooler day, members of the
Birdwatching 1 Group met up early to enjoy the birdsong in Coldfall Woods and search for the singers! Although it was rather chilly and the light not great for photos, they saw and heard plenty of woodland birds including blackcaps, chiffchaffs, mistle and song thrushes, nuthatches, jays, great spotted woodpecker, and stock doves, as well as the ubiquitous tits, crows, pigeons and parakeets. Some lucky people also saw a treecreeper doing what it does best.
It’s so good to be back!
