Pickering really is quite remarkable, a steam railway and a fabulous Castle on the doorstep. Time to see what I could see at the Castle, stand by for my best ever wildlife photo, or not!
There are Kestrels nesting in this wall of the Kings Tower. See them? Told you it was not my best picture. There is a telescope set up on the moat side below. I looked and looked. No Joy. A Yummy Mummy and her off spring came and they looked. “Oh look” says Yummy Mummy “I can see the babies and a kestrel feeding them. ” The children couldn’t see them either. I rest my case.
The view from the Castle of Beacon Hill is jolly nice, the hill is at the back of our house. No you can’t see our house, but it is a nice view, don’t you think?
You can just about make out the sheep. You do have to peer a bit. Anyway after that I took myself down to the Quaker Community Garden. It is so lovely there, peaceful and pretty, and there is a grass maze to scamper round. A chap returning tables to the meeting-house encouraged me to have a go, and as no-one was looking I did it barefoot. And nothing attacked me.
I may spend the rest of this 30 day wild challenge sat on the bench, safer that way!
