Summers End

With the nights drawing in and the days feeling cooler, it feels like summer is near its end. September can be a great time to be outdoors with wildlife more visible as animals and birds fatten up on seeds and berries in preparation for winter.

A walk along many of the footpaths within the parish is always rewarding with the softer light and long shadows. You can never be sure what you might encounter so now is a great time to enjoy the delights of the countryside. Below are a selection of images taken recently, showing just what is on offer. For details of walks within the parish visit                                  http://www.longitchingtonwalks.co.uk

Do not forget Bascote Road Community Nature Reserve project has an open afternoon at 2pm Saturday 22nd September. See previous post for details.
