I went to Lousehill copse on Sunday, an interesting old woodland on the side of a steep hill between three housing estates.
It was raining and the numerous little streams bubbled down the hillsides, and one of them flows through a lovely little valley to end in a pond.
the dogs had a great time in the pond
Lots of wildlife especially high up in the trees, mostly small birds and the occasional Woodpecker, including the scarce Lesser Spotted.
I enjoyed walking around in a woodland in one of the more densely populated bits of Reading for a couple of hours without seeing a soul all morning
