A Bright Corner…..


It has been rather dark and very wet over the past few days. But the Beech trees are still managing to add colour to these dark days.

The wind has stripped the leaves of most of the other woodland trees and now with no protective canopy the trunks are running with water..


The damp has produced one benefit for Fungi lovers.  At long last the fungi is bursting forth, several months late this year..

The bad weather has driven most of the wildlife into temporary hiding and one cannot blame them for taking shelter….down by the lake a lone young Black Headed Gull seems to have been abandoned by the flock, but he’s staying put …


After our extended summer and late autumn we should not complain about this wet and windy weather…but we no doubt will.  No sure how long it will continue but the forecasters are predicting that the jet stream is now heading northward away into the North Atlantic and this should draw in some more warm weather from the south.

We will see.


Meantime the outlook is rather grey.
