Autumn is nearly over and winter is approaching; the temperatures are falling.
Autumn pictures are usually about Thrushes eating berries, preferably red ones. Little did I think that I could get one from our house. Outside is a Whitebeam and it produces a rich crop of berries that has been appreciated by the Thrushes but also by a small party of four Bullfinches. They are a rare bird in town but perhaps appearing more frequently. By taking down the sash window and wrapping up well I was able to enjoy the birds at eye level. The Whitebeam gave a very pleasing range of earth and autumnal colours and is a first - a pleasing picture taken from inside the house.
