End of Month

September has been wet

20170928-12-2

and Autumn has crept up on us like the mist in the valley below

20170922-01-2

as our neighbours peer in

20170927-13

Colours are changing

20170928-18-2
20170928-06-2
20170928-02-2

and fungi is spreading

20170929-26
20170929-22
20170929-16
20170929-10-2
20170929-09-2

As the sap falls we do some tree work

20170925-04

clearing some self-sown sycamores

20170925-08

to bring light into the woodland margins

20170929-29

and adding new glow to the hydrangea

20170929-30

which acts as a twilight beacon

20170925-19

Work continues removing the grass from the meadow

20170929-13
20170929-05

and delivering it to the pigs

20170929-35

The most recent ex-pig is safely in the freezer. Not initially planned for this destination she was carrying a bit too much fat

20170929-36

but as well as these joints we do have a year’s supply of bacon and sausages

Down at the Lake, the lily has its own Autumn colours

20170929-06

and insect life continues unabated

20170929-09

Tomato production continues

20170923-01
20170930-03
20170929-02-2

Egg production has been down as feather changes take place. June has got her new set

20170928-24-2

Two recent arrivals, the Sussex Rangers, live up to their name by being the only hens happy to range in the rain

20170928-23-2

The youngest cohort leave their greenhouse accommodation for their first daytime outing

20170928-40-2

Solo and The Three Muscovites await

20170924-02

Wild bird activity has changed with territorial song starting up again.

This Bluetit is too busy trying to work out what to do with a large peanut

20170928-07

which it whittles down to a transportable shape and size

20170928-11

Spider activity continues. Looking closely at this Harvestman we are amazed by the delicate legs on the complex body

20170929-07-2

This Cellar Spider wraps up a fly

20170928-18

before clinically injecting it

20170928-30

As time ticks by, late born hedgehogs need help as they are too small to survive hibernation. One shed is turned into hedgehog hostel

20170929-38

containing six visitors at the time of writing – after passing through de-ticking induction

20170928-02-3

Flower colour continues

20170929-03-2
20170928-11-2
20170928-10-2
20170928-05-2

and a strange creature is squatting in the pantry
