Spooky Trail - Priory Farm

Priory Farm Halloween
So yesterday, by way of celebrating Halloween, we decided to take Thomas to Priory Farm to walk their seasonally themed "Spooky Trail" -
Priory Farm Spooky Trail
- made all the more spooky by the huge fields of dead sunflowers left from the summer -

- populated by absolutely hundreds of Himalayan Parakeets greedily gulping down the leftover seeds (occasionally being spooked and exploding into a green cloud above our heads - much to Thomas' amazement) and a carpet of Guinea Hen below picking over what the Parakeets dropped...

Climbing the (extremely muddy and slippery) hill -

- stopping briefly to admire the view -

- before playing in the musical maze -

- (which involved banging lots of gongs) -

- got scared by some giant spiders hanging under the high hide -

- and fired a giant arrow down the hill -

- trying not to kill any other visitors (or rampaging wildlife) -

- then we slid down the other side of the hill, dodging skeletons, through the orchard and pumpkin patch -
