Autumn colours

Sheffield Park in East Sussex is famed for its autumn colour, so Katrina and I paid it a visit this morning. The gardens were largely laid out in the 18th-century by Capability Brown. The overall effect was quite stunning, if a little saccharine for my taste, but there is room in this world for a classically-influenced wet-dream garden as much as there is for a bit of decent birding habitat I suppose.

Unlike Blyth's Reed Warblers and juvenile Indigo Buntings, those views are genuinely stunning...great shots Steve.

Nice Steve. We were there a couple of weeks ago, I'm sure I have photographed the same trees! A few Crossbills buzzing around when we were there, not much else. I do think they need to cull the plastic geese, the whole place is beginning to smell!

Thanks Stewart, you can’t go wrong with such vivid subjects.

Hi Mike, no Crossbills for me, just a few Siskins knocking about.
