What lives in your playground?
We've got a squirrel so fat from eating all the stuff the kids throw in the bushes he can no longer climb trees so he lives under one of the temporary classrooms. We've called him Boris.
We also get a load of freeloading woodpigeons and seagulls who fight over all the dropped sandwiches after break and lunch. Some of them are so big they would make a tasty meal themselves...
Then we've got some rats who again are obese and are on a permanent sugar high because they eat all the sweets the kids drop. It's really sad in the holidays to see them scurrying around desperately looking for food like crazed drug addicts looking for their next fix.

A family of foxes under one of the sheds... clearing their mess is not a pleasant job.

At my last school durning the summer holidays the playing fields got taken over by a flock of Geese. Poo everywhere.

We have a Squirrel and a ginger tomcat. I like watching the squirrel after dinner. He hangs of the edge of the bin and pulls food out and puts it on the wall as he goes, once he is done he gaters it up and runs off. The cat skulks around eating alsorts and gives chase to the Squirrel when it appears .

I don't have a playground as such, but outside of my window I have:
It's like an audition for Springwatch here!

Aww! I want Dos_Box's window...

Seagulls on the playground.
Pigs, sheep, geese, chickens, cows, frogs, snakes, dogs and rabbits on the school farm.

Only the usual seagulls. Our kids would probably kick anything else to death.

Seagulls the size of turkeys.
A few moggies and that's about it really.

Foxes. We had a deer with its head stuck in the railings yesterday - but no one would let me kill it for venison. Also a tame pheasant lives under a PortaKabin and follows the site staff round in the mornings. All pretty strange as the school is close to the centre of town - not rural at all.
