Beech trees produce some of the best colours both on the ground and when leaves are still on the trees.
Would really like to have my dog’s life today. Napping in the sunshine on a Snuggly bed with no worries or jobs to do seems ideal!
Cool bit of blue tit behaviour just now
So my bedroom is third floor, quite a flight for a little blue tit. But one (or a number) of individuals have been visiting my window lately and picking off, what I can only assume are, ladybirds and possibly spiders. Ladybirds in particular are attracted to spaces like windows at this time of year, desperate to find somewhere warm to snuggle down for the winter. The blue tit makes its way around my window frame picking them off.
I’ve seen them on walls before foraging for insects but not around windows, and certainly not this high up and out in the open.
Missing summer, even though I usually love autumn! The top of Scotland may have been a 13 hour drive but it was beautiful and I miss it.
Honey fungus, a big problem here in the UK. Getting the dead tree this sprouted from chopped down and burned ASAP.
