Have not been out the same this week as the weather has been sooooo bad..
but last weekend we had a visit to my parents.
In the playing fields stands a mighty Lime tree.
It has a huge Witches broom fungus in the middle ( I think)
Sadly the tree has been loosing it's branches and they have found it is rotting in the middle, it looks like it might have to come down.
This is a special tree, late October/ November thousands of Starlings will come and roost in this tree over night. People will come to watch the Starlings perform great murmurations. Some years it will have a few, but one year they filled the whole sky and the noise was so loud. Not many people get the chance to get that close.
I will miss it...if it has to go..
