Every evening this week the BBC nature unit is broadcasting Autumnwatch from my village in the Cotswolds. So I thought I’d show you a corner of it, all photographed yesterday.
This is the Broadwater, a stream turned into a chain of small lakes by Lord Sherborne, and now sadly silting up because the National Trust has made a decision not to dredge them.
There are fewer over-wintering ducks than there used to be, but we still have wigeon and of course mallard.
And the swans and egrets are there year round.
Away from the water, there are jackdaws, and horses too…
(The weathervane is on top of the old stables block, they did things in style in those days.)
