I've been rather busy domestically and this is set to continue for another couple of weeks or so... more on that topic in due course.
I have managed one or two quick trips into Bushy Park and this morning was no exception. After a dreadful summer - weatherwise - this last week has been glorious... lots of sunshine and warmth and plenty of it - an Indian Summer perhaps. But as I sit at the 'puter it's now chucking it down with rain... ah well..
On arrival today the first thing I heard was a Mistle Thrush... before I could spot it, it shot off to another tree... great to see it again though.
Just a few pics from my strolls...
In the Silver Birch glade an amount of tree felling had been done. All wood left in place making good homes for wildlife.
On one dead tree, much fungi was to be found..
All through the woods it sounded as though it was raining; but it was the many acorns falling from the oak trees. The Jays love these and several dashed about.
and the leaves of this plant are more dramatic than the flower... growing in one of the small streams..
Great to have a break, stretch my legs, see some wildlife and get some fresh air...
