Green and pleasant monkeys

We’re back in south Liverpool where the map is now showing quite a good spread of monkeys. South Liverpool is a green and pleasant land, so no surprise to find plenty of well distributed monkeys.

There’s now a list of all catalogued monkeys – the ‘L’ catalogue is listed here – and so you can go easily to any of the blog posts which feature the monkeys.

And taking advantage of the sunny weather, I’ve been out, with my tireless driver Ronnie Hughes (thanks Ronnie), to catch up with some more local monkeys. First, near Sefton Park, actually just further up the road from the lovely ‘Urban monkey‘ in Ashfield Road, L20.

Looks like that hedge has been recently cut, giving us a fine view of this lovely tree.

Just up past Sudley House we’re in Mentmore Road, where Agent Jeff first spotted this one. The house was for sale and it Jeff saw it in the estate agent details. Good work!

This particular monkey is looking very well set off by the purple beech behind it.

Next it’s Greenhill Road where this monster lives.

I have Agent Jeff again to thank for the initial sighting of this tree. Hard to miss anyway!

These three monkeys were all on my list for today, and we’re off to Gateacre now for some other known monkeys. But on the way, we spot this one.

Yes, could easily have missed this, as it’s in a very densely planted front garden.

The other south Liverpool monkey is this one, on Aigburth Road, photographed a couple of weeks ago.

There’s also a good view of it from Aigbuth Hall Nurseries, just round the corner. Where, I’m sad to report, they didn’t have any monkeys for sale…

So, that’s it for now. We did go to Gateacre too – where we found four monkeys, double the number I was expecting. So that’s for another post.
