Autumn is Approaching

A photo of Beetles on the Forest floor.

It’s still warm in the Forest and beetles are very evident at this time of year on the Forest footpaths. The small gathering above was seen on a recent walk near to Boy’s Grave.
There is a profusion of bright red haws in the woodland and in hedges this year and plenty of rose hips to be seen on New Fancy – where the Geomap has just had it’s annual clean.
