September Walk

01Sep13

I’ve just been on a walk. The first day of September always brings an awareness of autumn being on its way. The sky was heavy, and at times quite grey, but it did not rain. I came across a number of mushrooms and toadstools, hedge apples, a young wren flitted across the path before disappearing into a small crevice in a stone wall. Above my head buzzards circled, although there was quite a strong wind at some points. Blackberries are plentiful this year, and rose hips, though I could find very few sloes. It’s also been a bad year for swallows here perhaps sadly the victims of late snow earlier in the year here and in France.

  1. Just been for a very similar walk here in Cwm Rheidol! Collected a couple of large bags of blackberries and thought about how few sloes there were and how many rowan berries – and what can you do with rowan?

  2. Hi Steffan – glad to see you’ve out enjoying the countryside, We lead two 14 mile walks over the Berwyns for the Corwen walking festival at the weekend. Hope to meet-up with you for a coffee soon – Mike – http://www.facebook.com/TREKsmart
