So we have arrived at the beginning of Autumn. This is when we celebrate the first harvests. It is also when we begin to feel the first cool pinches of the year drawing on, in the early morning.
The birds are well into their late summer moults, and starting to feed up for winter. Squirrels are raiding the walnut tree, and the young badger cubs can be seen exploring around their sets before dusk.
It won't be long before we see the adult badgers noisily eating the windfall apples from under the trees.
