I began writing this post in mid-november when we should have been surrounded by the blaze of autumn colour, the hedges and trees should be on fire with the reds and oranges and the autumn migrant thrushes should be gorging on the berries in the hedgerows and gardens. At that time there was little sign of these things happening.
As we move towards the end of November things have changed greatly. We now garden to the sounds of migrant thrushes passing high over head, Redwings, Fieldfares and Mistle Thrushes and a few small flocks are settling in our berried trees. They see us as a stopping off point where they can gorge on the berries and fruits of our Crab Apples, Sorbus and Cotoneasters.
But what will they see when they drop in? Come with me and my camera for a wander.

What a great collection of pictures, the composition, focus, colors! I don’t know much about photography but these seem really well put together. Thanks, and please tell me there were at least a couple blurry, grainy shots, it would make me feel better…
Oh yes indeed there were a few failures mostly failing to get depth of field right. Malc
Our Autumn color is almost past here in the US, but was very pretty while it lasted.
Have a wonderful day!
Our autumn colour is still going strong after many weeks and looks set to continue. It looks like being one of the best in our memories. Malc
