Stover Park is Good!

If you’ve spent Sunday afternoon shopping in Trago Mills you’re probably in dire need of respite, recovery, refuge.

Stover Park is just over the road.

There’s a lake to walk your dog around. There’s a bird feeder observation point to scoot your kids around. There’s a Hide to tweetle birdies on the lake from. There’s Ted Hughes poems to read on marble posts. There’s a natty little dragonfly pond.

As soon as the sun appeared, dragonflies and damselflies skeetered around the rim of the pond. I think I only got a few dragonflies in this vid.

‘Only got’?! Dragonflies! Being there for me to film! No only about it. Only very. Got to be good.

And there were bees being good. And swans. And chaffinches, tits, and tree creepers, a woodpecker. All good.

And there was a squirrel being very good!

PS No pre or post Trago Mills shopping was suffered in the making of this film!
