Tree Creepers at Golden Acre

Just up the road from where I live, in North Leeds is Golden Acre Park.  Its a great place that I visit often as it is one of Sparkys favourite walks.  there is a biggish lake with plenty of wildfowl on, gardens and a cafe.  It is well known in horticultural circles for the growing of flowers and vegetables – there is a special garden area for this.  But the part I love is away from this area, into the woods and more open spaces.  We call this the back of the park, where all the dog walkers go.  It is reached from Arthington Road and there is a car park.  If you walk from the car park off the path to your left and into the woods and just stand quietly you will generally be rewarded with many finches, tits, blackbirds and squirrels.  At the edge of this woodland is where I first saw a tree creeper.
