Well we really cannot complain, the prediction is that winter will arrive from our friends in Europe later today. But right now we can continue to enjoy the autumnal colours. They were late in arriving but have been a real visual feast since.
Nor has it just been the woods that have been enhanced by the colours, the lakeside too has been magnificent and an added pleasure to the Pike Fishermen.
So I guess its out with the fleeces and thermals and wait to see what nature actually delivers over the next few months…..and without any doubts we do need some rain. At least over the darker winter months we have the memories of a record breaking summer and a fabulous late autumn…
