This last week in September proved to be the real start of ‘proper’ autumnal weather. After a lovely few days of warmth and sunshine mid-month the temperatures soon dropped, the wind gained in strength and the rain, along with impressive thunderstorms, arrived. Making it a teeny bit difficult to get this walk in. Anyway last Friday, in between showers, I managed to do half of this walk and capture enough photos to show you what is happening during this month. I knew it would be difficult to find anything different so was on the look out for textures. My ID knowledge is poor this month so if you can help out please leave your suggestions in the comments.
