My local patch seems to be getting bigger with more ponds to keep an eye on. Still some flowers around, looking around the patch recently as well as the dunes at Druridge and East Chevington, the meadows at Ulgham Grange are still looking colourful with some late flowering species and the dunes at Druridge still have some nice species in flower; Autumn Gentian being my favourite. At East Chevington yesterday there were four Snow Geese with the regular flock of Geese and plenty of other wildfowl. Today in the Borough woods at Morpeth there were two Marsh Tits in the mixed flock in the tree tops.
