We went for a walk in Sydenham Woods yesterday and it was lovely, as it often is this time of the year
There were the customary "Hello & how are you" and "Lovely day" exchanges. All very civilised it was.
However, we then met a man who asked my boys "Have you seen any Rats yet"
"RATS...where ?" Their faces all lit up
After a brief exchange we set off, eyes peeled. And blimey, there's a fair few up there. In the space of 40 minutes we saw half a dozen or so. Apparently the Fox population, which was previously quite high, has fallen and with it the Rats have grown in numbers
We mainly saw them around the high path, near the Dulwich Wood Crescent gate.
It was all a bit creepy (but my boys loved it)
Any other "wildlife" sightings up there ?
