Christ Church meadow

I took this photo a couple of days ago at one of my favourite spots in Oxford, the Christ Church meadow. It's an ideal place for a picnic, a nice walk, to read a book at the riverside or just enjoy some time when the sun is shining. If you're lucky and keep your eyes open, you might spot a roe deer or some squirrels, like I did. This little fellow was enjoying a nut before climbing back into a tree, probably because I scared him with my camera. I'm quite sure he wasn't aware of the fact that he's eating his nuts at the place where in 1784 James Sadler was the first Englishman to make a balloon ascent in England. Did you?
