Nymans.. but where was the sun?

I find it quite hard to gain an hour when the clocks go back... unfortunately I often wake very early and today was no exception - I don't really like the shortened daylight hours..  and I know I'm not alone in this and.. and .. and..

However given I 'm a bit restricted to going to far at the mo.. I headed off for Nymans Gardens... not much sun but plenty of visitors which is good for Nymans.

I usually go in the same direction (being a creature of habit) but today went the opposite way for slightly different views..

Lots of autumn colour still - but it's been very windless the last few days... long may it last..

Time for lunch: a tasty Butternut Squash and Red Pepper Soup and a fruit scone.. both very good

I visited Warnham LNR later .. but no pics today..

Parham House and Gardens.. at Halloween..

As it's Halloween and half-term week, Parham House & Garden was open this weekend, and I need to stay fairly local at the moment

It's a grey grey day but nonetheless, got there as it opened.  There were Fallow Deer visible in the park  and not too far away as I drove through.. managed to get this picture from the car

some lovely Autumn colour....

There was a Falcontry company present.. I didn't take many pics of the birds at this point.. the light was dreadful and they were under cover..

European Eagle Owl

Barn Owl

Billie hadn't been out for a while, so Fido generously stayed at home so Billie could get some fresh air..

Some rather colourful veg..

A miniature house for children.. although it was shut today.

Billie thought the balcony was much more his size...

Even ducks need to be prepared..

There was a Falconry display taking place in a bit,  so after a sandwich and cuppa for lunch

The light was dreadful but I wanted to try some birds-in-flight shots.. not done so with this camera..


Harris Hawk (I think....)

and then it started to rain.. so decided to head off ..
