October Bows Out

It's as if, having given us days of startling sunshine, October has given up, bowing out with the sort of weather we have to expect through November and the coming winter. The month leaves a legacy of bright colours in the leaves and, in particular, in the bracken, which has taken on a coppery tinge beautiful enough to almost forgive its ongoing invasion of croft land.

There's a restlessness amongst the wildfowl, with small skeins of geese moving across the skies as if looking for a place to settle which will offer them peaceful winter forage, while....

....for the small birds it's a matter of getting used to waiting patiently in the rain for their turn at the bird feeders.

  1. The bracken photo is especially lovely. How I would love to be able to go out for a walk and see that view.
