Weekly walk, October 13th

Pond from the north

Still reasonable weather for October, but a bit duller, the air cooler, and a sense that there might soon be gales to start stripping the trees of their leaves.  As it was, there was the occasional gust, making the reeds sway, and I saw a willow leaf whose aerodynamics made it fall like a helicopter – or maybe a sycamore seed.

In pursuit of some litter, I stepped away from the path at one point, and found myself looking at a coppiced hazel.  It’s there on our species list, but until today, I’d not have been able to say where one was.

Still more fungi showing, so a few photos for uploading to ispotnature.org.
