Here is Credenhill Park Wood in early August. It is still very verdant, though most of the blooms and blossoms are now forming into seeds and berries. The birds are quieter than they have been. This is probably because they are moulting, so aren’t in tip top flying condition. They are mostly lurking in the undergrowth trying not be noticed. They have also finished with the business of getting territories, mates and raising chicks. Some will be getting ready to leave us for their long migrations.
The squirrels were very active in the tree tops munching merrily. One young one clambered down to get a better look at us.
Rambling Ratz is off for some supper now before scurrying outside to watch the Perseids meteor shower; in the North-West between midnight and dawn, here’s hoping for clear skies.
