Autumnal weather

Autumn is upon us. Leaves are changing colour and flocks of tits & 'crests are beginning to steam through the woodlands and gardens. Hopefully the colder weather will deter the brain deads who inhabit Stanney Woods at night drinking cheap alcohol and smashing bottles to amuse their tiny minds.

Autumn passage over the house has started with the first parties of Meadow Pipits and the odd Grey Wagtail have passed over at first light. A major garden rarity was recorded this morning - a Reed Bunting by the pond. The high pressure has resulted in some superb sunsets over the garden in the last week.

Amongst other creatures inhabiting the garden is this large Frog that Molly found and takes great delight in getting it to hop by nudging it with her nose. Along with the regular Hedgehog its helping decimate the slug population.
