Fooled You…..


It is NOT Spring…..Big Wood Allestree

No it is not Spring but mid September yet the look and feel of our woodland is still very much that of a Spring morning.

The only noticeable nod to autumn is the Robin who had started his rather bad tempered warning Tut Tut Tut territorial call, imitated by the slightly sweeter Tut of the Wren. The rest of the woodland and surrounding meadows are quiet so I guess most of our migrating birds have already headed off to warmer climes.

So lets enjoy the slow decline inevitably to autumn

Meantime it is yet another great start to the day down by the lake
