Yesterday morning we walked in the Oakwood at Trentham. There was a cool breeze whispering in the trees and rippling through the ferns.
The air was damp and the ground beneath our feet was soft and soggy
As we walked there were definite signs of Autumn - leaves tinged with yellow and so many species of fungi.
As we walked we saw evidence of deer, tracks, droppings and antler marked tree trunks; we followed their tracks for awhile whilst the buzzards and peregrines called overhead.
Their mournful cries seemed to match the cool, dim, dankness of the day. Autumn is creeping in early this year.
