4th October

Three turned out on a cloudy but pleasant day to go to Thornton Reservoir in search of Autumn Colours and wildlife.
There was plenty of wildlife, most of it apparently gathering for the flight to warmer climes, plus a few gulls. Part grown swans and their parents were plentiful too.
We were greeted on the path by two tiny Shetland ponies. Well, one tiny, the other miniscule!
The trees had not yet fully taken on their Autumn raiment, but were well on.
The new cameras were much in evidence and we expect great things at the showing...
A pleasant stroll around the reservoir turned into a brisk march back to the car to get home in time for lunch.
Like the Three Wise Men, we decided to take a different way home and had a pleasant wander through autumn countryside.
