The monthly walk round the Abbey Fishponds Nature Reserve shows a lot of leaves on the ground and far fewer in the trees.
Greens are giving way to duller greens, browns, and golds.
A lot of the reeds and sedges have been cut. The area is much wetter than I ever realised. Many more ponds than could be seen in other months. There is not just the stream running through the centre but there must be lots of irrigating springs.
The walkway across the centre of the reserve is not a green but a gold archway.
The Oak Tree still has some green.
I could only get the blurriest pictures of birds this month. Not a blackbird or crow to show on today’s walk.
