It started out misty as befits a good autumn day.
Spiders' webs caught the dew......and the far side of Restharrow Scrape couldn't be seen.
Two Meadow Pipits posed in the murk, which soon cleared to give a glorious sunny warm day.
Up at Hope Point there were flocks of Goldfinches and Wagtails flying south, while on the sea a lone Shag drifted with the current.
A Grey Heron was disturbed from the rocks below, where two Little Egrets also foraged.
In the stubble fields , I found no Fluellen but there were Field Pansies ('freak'd with jet' thought Milton).
Insects enjoying the Indian Summer included a Small Copper (the first ever in my garden) and the first (and very late) Humming-Bird Hawk Moth - the only 'humming-bird' we get, and it may have flown in from France on the warm southerly wind.
Mrs K is expecting a cold winter, so a load of logs had to be shifted from the front to the back garden. This gave an opportunity for keeping an eye and an ear open for any more birds for the October list, and a few more were added, including this Coal Tit.
Jays were abundant, with a party of four flying over at one point.
The Met Office is forecasting another mild, drier, winter this year, by the way.
