Autumn Moves On

Sunday, November 3rd 2019

 Autumn is moving on quickly and the difference a few days makes is most noticeable.  The area around the lake is deepening in autumn colours.

Woodland surrounding the heath is also turning yellow.  Unfortunately some of the best colour is to be found in the Silver Birch, which spreads it seeds far and wide.

Out on the moor looking back into the centre of the reserve, the contrast between the conifers and deciduous trees is easily seen.

One of the Junipers is developing its cones.  These are still young as they are green and will not fully ripen for possibly another two to three years.

Most invertebrates are hidden away but I disturbed this spider whilst photographing one of the last Harebells in flower.
