Another beautiful morning for a walk around the park (this time with a couple of young apprentices).
The leaves are falling fast
A brief glimpse of a kingfisher then a yellow wagtail were the best on the river; then three cormorants, 9 Canada geese, 2 mute swans, a grey heron and many black-headed gulls looked very attractive against the vivid autumnal colours reflected on the lake.
The more committed apprentice – see his list of birds spotted.
