end of summer

So the minis, lapwings, swallows and swifts have all departed and it is time to restart the winter thrush surveys again. Beech and lime seeds are dropping and the leaves beginning to turn. Nettles and thistles are dying back, leading to a two-week window when certain paths are passable, between being too full of nettles and too boggy to cross. The birds are beginning to creep back into the garden with the robin and blackbirds being particularly evident.

Oh and fungi are everywhere, and with them teenage boys crawling through the fields on hands and knees looking for ‘the wrong kind of mushroom’.
