After bigging up the very short Autumns in these parts, I have been astounded this year just how long it has gone on. I don't mind being wrong in those circumstances. The light! The leaves! The weirdly-shaped fungi! What is not to love? A female Stonechat on a building site Who is this? Lurking amongst the branches at the edge of a wood. A female Sparrowhawk A blissful Beech hedge This tiny wasp was found clambering over lichen on the sunny side of a tree.
