Autumn sunset

Seems every time we look at the countryside it looks even more autumnal. After a rainy day the sun came out with its long shadows. With the clocks due to go back tomorrow morning we are enjoying the colours as winter approaches.

Autumn Acers

Autumn at it's most spectacular is with us as we found in a visit to Westonbirt Arboretum today.
A few more windy days and the leaves will be gone so enjoy it while you can.

Now is a good time to see birds on migration and we were pleased to get a good view of a small group of wheatear on Uley Bury today.
After spending the summer in their breeding grounds mostly on open moorland the birds are now heading off to warmer climes in Africa for the winter

Autumn colours

The autumn colours are progressing in the Cotswolds as the trees turn. Last weekend on our afternoon walk we had misty conditions so that far views were hasy but nearer views ok.

Autumnal mist and cobwebs

Spiders have been busy weaving cobwebs and the morning mist has covered them with droplets of dew making an impressive sight.
