We have spotted some fairy homes in Ladywell Fields recently. Next time you are out for a walk, look around to see if there are more...

A pair of Egyptian Geese have made their home in Ladywell Fields. In Britain, this species is found mainly in East Anglia at sites with open water, short grass and suitable nesting locations. They disperse in winter along many rivers where they feed on grass and cereals. Egyptian geese usually pair for life.
While in Ancient Egyptians considered them sacred, they may be shot in modern Britain if causing problems. Please note, our pair are not causing any harm in Ladywell Fields.

In the week when the number of Coronavirus related deaths sadly is set to pass the 100,000 mark, local people have put up an improvised Covid memorial in the North Fields next to the tennis courts and the bridge to the hospital. This is intended to create a space to remember people that died at a time when we can't be physically together. Follow at https://www.instagram.com/covidmemorialuk/.

Ladywell Fields has temporarily acquired two new lakes in the South Field. The attractive addition to the local landscape was caused by heavy rainfalls on Wednesday.
There is a small stream in this area of the park which swells in wet weather.
The photos shows the upper of the two lakes. The lower lake may flood the path, so caution is advised when taking walks.
