There is definitely a hint of autumn in the air now.  The cotoneaster in the garden is studded with bright red berries like so many shiny beads.  There must be a lot of food around for the birds this year as often the blackbirds strip this bush bare.  It's like watching little berry eating machines as they pick them off and swallow them, one after another after another...


  1. I thought this the other day. There is a definite smell of autumn in the air.

  2. You're right, it definitely smells of autumn now, especially first thing in the morning. My favourite season, I love that smell.

  3. Fab photo, what camera do you use?

  4. It is a canon powershot A1100 - I'm not a camera expert at all, when I was buying it I just looked for one with the same controls as my old one so I didn't have to learn a whole new setup!
