Birds of a Feather

The Durham University Botanic Gardens is one of the hidden treasures around here.  (Incidentally, students are admitted free.)  The Gardens sits near the Howlands Colleges and south of the Palatine Centre, Bill Bryson Library (the main library), Calman Learning Centre, and the associated buildings in the complex.

The family headed out for a day at the Gardens and the nearby Oriental Museum, while Rob was in the office working on his latest literature review.  One of the features is the Bird Blind.  This provides the ideal, ahem, perch to watch the variety of birds that live in the Northeast.  This was a part of our ongoing efforts, in connection with classroom work, to enhance the children’s education.

I hope you enjoy the sights as much as we did.

God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.”  Genesis 1:22.
