We helped with litter picking for Baffins pond association this morning. Val, Nia and Aoife interrupted a squirrel gathering in the woods and Abby almost had my hat stolen by grandad squirrel.

We circled the woods and picked up lots of sweet wrappers, cigarette butts and pieces of glass. Found some interesting fungi and Judy managed to find 3 tokens from last years Easter egg hunt a year after we hid them!

Finished off with making friends with a lovely Italian greyhound called Wilfred 🐾. Also managed to see a massive swan sitting on his nest! Maybe keeping his eggs warm? Looking forward to seeing some cygnets in the future!
