We took advantage of the one day of beautiful weather this week (more rain and wind is on its way…) and went for a little walk in Eaves Wood near Silverdale. The leaves are turning colour and dropping, but the trees still have a lot of foliage. I thought this tree looked a bit like a still shot of an explosion. The people who manage this wood use coppicing as a method to preserve the current status of this eco-system and maybe they let this one go.
After a fish and chips lunch we had a stroll along the sands in Arnside and Di spotted an enormous flock of birds high in the sky. Unfortunately, I did not have my 400mm telelens with me, so this is a cropped version of the one I took with the 24-105mm lens. Later we saw on the news that these were probably Pink-Footed Geese on their way from Iceland to the Martin Mere nature reserve, a journey of well over 1,000 miles.
