Autumn fayre

Spent my days off around the meadows as I haven't had time to go to the coast this week. I have a few days off next week so hope the weather becomes more suitable. The south westerlies have brought some lovely sunny weather but nothing of note flying over. There are still a few Blackcaps around feeding on the berries and lots of Nuthatches but no sign of Autumn migration this week. The woodland floor is very autumnal; I have had a couple of Fox sightings and the usual woodland and river birds but there is plenty of Fungi around the woods. The above pics are Wood blewits, a couple of fingi that I'm not sure what they are exactly but I think they are Common bonnet ( Mycena galericulata) and Clustered toughshank (Collybia confluens), still a few flowers out like this White dead nettle and a pic of the Wansbeck at Borough woods flowing fast where it used to be almost still and the Horses back at Abbey mill after the flood water subsided.
