Although it was crispy cold, it was a fantastic Autumn day, the leaves on the trees are changing colour and the paths are now like carpets of leaves.
As I approached i could see away in the far side of the field two Herons looking for food.There was no sign of any swallows or martins, where a few weeks before there had need one or two.
The pond itself was quiet I didn’t see any ducks swans at all from a distance. As I got nearer i could see feathers all along the banks and in the swans nest on the far side.
I threw some bread into the pond and at last the ducks came into view from my left. Amongst them were some young coots which was good to see.
The Swans were nowhere to be seen, and I can only speculate that they have moved to warmer climates for the winter.
