Signs of Autumn
Crisp autumn days are full of colour as the leaves turn red and gold. Toadstools pop up from the floor like fairy-tale towers and animals can be spotted scurrying around foraging berries
During autumn the days are rapidly getting shorter and the sun is becoming lower in the sky. There are however, lots of wildlife highlights in this colourful season; spectacular sunsets, the stars can seem brighter at night, and on some mornings mist hangs over fields and parks creating stunning photo opportunities. This is a time of nature's plenty, with a wonderful hedgerow harvest of blackberries, rose hips, crab apples, hazelnuts and seeds. Many of our much loved creatures take advantage of this wild harvest to build up reserves of fat for migration or for hibernation.
We've picked some autumn highlights to look out for below!
