I want to start include trees in this thread. Specimen trees, that is large/old trees and also less common species. I'm no expert by any means but i know the city's parks have good examples, including rarer conifers and species such as Walnut.
A walk i regularly make has four different species Oak within a hindred yards as well as about a dozen other species. I'll photograph them when they start to break in to leaf in a few weeks.

Took this photo this morning, no it's not the tree if you look closely at the centre of the trunk you can see a small brown bird. Paul will spot it it's a Tree Creeper.

I used to always find their nests years ago in Croxteth Park,when you climbed up to them the bird used to stay put for ages confident you couldn't see them.If there's any old or dying trees around,look up were there's bark hanging off,if you can see tiny twigs then it's possibly a nest.

Just to add to Paul's post. Turnstones are winter visitors to the UK from Russia and Scandanavia. They feed by using their beaks to turn stones over to find food, hence the name. Great little bird. Nice pic, thanks.

Not very clear - but this is one of a couple of cormorants who regularly frequent The Salthouse Dock.
