16th October - back to the Indian Summer?

Still summer?

This is the second day of glorious sunny weather - a wonderful weekend.  Some of the smaller inhabitants of the wood must be getting a little confused - surely now should be the time for eating lots and getting ready to hibernate?  It IS chilly at night, though, so hopefully instinct will kick in and preparations for the winter ahead will still continue!

There was almost a frost last night, so the colours are beginning to get spectacular, too.  The golds are beginning to give way to crimson and shivering, silvery peppermint on the willows.
