. . . and the squirrels. And, enjoy your day.
While strolling through the park one day, in the merry merry month of May (at the southern end),
I was taken by surprise, by a pair of roguish eyes,
I was scared but I didn’t run away,
“I keep throwing the stick but El Thicko keeps bringing it back. I hope it doesn’t start a trend”.
“Did somebody say stick”.
“My tongue’s thwollen”. More squirrels here⇐.
Coot Chicks more here ⇐.
This is all at the southern end of Crystal Palace Park.
“Bosch, got it”.
“Come here, me little Jacky, now aw’ve smoked mi backy
Have a bit o’ cracky, till the boat comes in
Dance ti’ th’ daddy, sing ti’ th’ mammy, dance ti’ th’ daddy, my little man
You shall have a fishy on a little dishy
You shall have a fishy when the boat gets in.”
Near the café at the southern (lowest) end of the park.
This is from the northern (highest) end of the park.
The upper terraces were once the site of the Crystal Palace. Crystal (Glass) Palace was originally sited in Hyde Park and housed the Great Exhibition⇒ from 1851 to 1854 then the whole thing was moved to Penge and the Park created. The structure was burned down in 1936 but the park remains and, once a year, is used for a race of classic/vintage cars⇐.
On the upper terraces can be found four of these (two at each end). Currently being refurbished they are actually caged to prevent further attacks upon tourists. 😀
If visiting the park it makes more sense to start at the northern (high) end at or the mid area (right next to Crystal Palace station), walk down hill (for the dinosaurs and ponds) and then escape by using Penge West rail station. And, I hope you enjoy your days out.
At the Eastern End of St James’s Park
This time I took some food. I put down the carrier bag to take out my camera and ~
“Right, I’ll do the old squirrel up the leg routine”.
“You do the blag”
“I’ll do the snatch. I’m so cute the rozzers will never suspect”
“Oh my, Oh my, Oh my. I’m rich I tell you, rich”
“Well now that’s all sorted out, a nice little sit down on this handy leggy thing”
“Cor blimey governor, it ain’t ‘alf a good bit of cashew this.”
“A nice piece of walnut for me. I say, any chance of liqueur”.
“Look it’s the great Squirreldini”
“Blasted squirrels. Any of us could do that if we wanted too”
“What, with these feet”
We don’t have much and life can be hard, but:-
Sittin’ in the morning sun
I’ll be sittin’ when the evening comes
Watching the ships roll in
Then I watch them roll away again, yeah
I’m sittin’ on the dock of the bay
Watchin’ the tide roll away, ooh
I’m just sittin’ on the dock of the bay

This is at the south east entrance to Hyde Park. Entrance to the fair is free but the rides are paid for in tokens that are purchased at kiosks. Special attractions can be booked online or paid for at the venue (but you may have to queue). More information here. Food and drink are expensive (£5 for a Hot Dog).
This is free.
Now that’s been taken taken care of, how about a game ? – So,
What have we got in our pocketses then ?
More squirrels up legs ⇐.
I’ve always considered myself to be quite animal friendly, and animals quite friendly to me. Nevertheless, at the south east corner of St James’s Park Lake, I was quite surprised by this.
I discovered why squirrels are so good at climbing trees. Those little claws are sharp.
When he or she looked up and realised that this tree had a face, there was a quick scamper off behind a real tree.
There was another one.
At first I thought this must be the same squirrel, but a close examination of the whiskers shows a variation and there is slightly darker patch at the left shoulder. I think they must have been siblings and the little scamps were playing “Anything you can do, I can do better”.
Even the geese were surprised.
Wha’ the ~.
Still, they were only having fun in their own squirrely way. Good on them, they make me laugh and I feel quite privileged to have had squirrels up my leg.
There are more squirrels at the Great Nut Heist.
Just outside Kensington Palace and a little to the north, there is an intersection in the path where the squirrels like to play. These cheeky chaps seem particularly interested in people with shopping. They also like to play hide and seek with photographers. The other games are; now I’m in focus and now I’m not and I’ll move just at the moment you press the shutter button. They’re very good at it. I took about 20 snaps, these are the only 4 worth showing. Can’t complain though, they were only having fun and very endearing.
“I say, have you got any linguine and do you know the way to San José.”
Just outside Kensington Palace where you can see this house.
Now you see me, and now ~
“Flash ah ah , the savior of the universe”.
“Alright you got me. Now about my fee”.
I hope you enjoyed that. They always make me laugh.

Your mission, should you wish to accept it, is nuts.
First we catch the nut.
Then we bury the ones that will keep.
Then we have some fun. Shhimple !
This is one’s just hanging.
But, in a different light. Them paparazzi will demonize anybody, disgraceful. 😛
Squirrels can usually be found at the south east corner of upper Greenwich Park.
