This photo of the Harvest Moon was taken recently on one of these balmy nights.
In the meantime winter migrants are already on their way. Small groups of geese can be heard and then seen overhead, many arriving in the night. RSPB Burton Mere has huge numbers collecting on their lakes at the moment. Check out http://www.deeestuary.co.uk/lsight.htm for lasted sightings.

Horse Chestnut Leaf Miner www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/tree-diseases is very evident in Wirral and although not fatal is responsible for early leaf drop and unsightly rusting leaves. Fortunatly not all trees have succumbed and pockets have still resisted.
Maybe like last year we will have a long slow Autumn with drawn out tree colour over many weeks.
