squall over Dartmoor

and still it rains, the ewes must be soaked. Dartmoor is on the far horizon, Hingston Down to the right.

where's my ball



Spot in his autumn colours, and Cassie showing no sign of fear in pursuit of an old football lodged beneath the waterfall.

traveller's joy

our native wild clematis, showing why it is sometimes called old man's beard.

one of my favourite birds



a pair of nuthatches arrived at the bird table today, probably blown here by the gales. I don't know why but they are amongst my favourite birds. Very busy and quite aggressive with everyone else.

it's getting wet

much more rain on the saturated ground and it will flood. Very strong winds blowing today, the English hurricane season has started.
