It takes me about 25 minutes to walk to Frimley Park from where I live. I too have noticed that it's gone rather quiet. When I do hear a siren from my house I think it must be really serious ....This is the approach road to Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey. This road is normally heaving with hospital and through traffic. This is about twenty minutes walk from home and while taking this picture I realised something.
Normally, while working from home, I hear a dozen or more sirens a day.
Now, I do realise that they are used to get through traffic and at the moment there is none, but on every walk near the hospital I see two or three ambulances silently gliding past, heading in.
500+ Covid fatalities in Surrey, and more every day, many at this hospital. I wonder whether they have also been told to be quiet so as not to unsettle...View attachment 218559
Chickens dirt bathe so much we made a special area for them. They have their own little dirt spa.Day 12: Feline Dirt Bath
When the weather gets a little warmer, my cat (given name 'Horace', family name 'Walpole') is an unapologetic fan of rolling around in the dirt. There's something about a dirt bath, apparently, which appeals to quadrupeds, as well as to younger human bipeds.
