A perfect day for autumn colours

At last there's been some autumn rainfall and the streams are filling. This waterfall is squeezed
between alders that enjoy wet roots.

Alder catkins are a lovely purple...

Perfect weather for watching the Veteran Car Run from London to Brighton which passes
through the village each year. Staplefield is a popular viewing point.

It may not have been sunny but mild weather meant that it was a busy day at the
refreshement tent at the bottom of Tanyard Lane.

I don't post many pictures of wrens.
They are one of the commonest birds around the village, but they don't often sit still.

This grey wagtail has visited the garden over the last few days. They normally like shallow streams and
can often be seen paddling in the stream at the top of Tanyard Lane. It is easily identified by it
yellow body. (Not to be confused with a yellow wagtail.)

The much more common pied wagtail, who is regularly seen, strutting his stuff,

The hedgerows are full of berries after the long summer. It's been a very good year for this
black bryony. Probably called 'black' due to its poison. It is part of the yam family and it has large
tubers, which are also poisonous.
