Autumn rolling in...

The temperatures are definitely falling now and today it is cold - under 10*C and damp, with mist a light rain. So much for the weather forecast...

That said, this is a nice time of the year, lots of amazing colours in the forests, Red Squirels collecting nuts and goodies to store up, birds building nests and, as Mausi has pointed out, the geese and the storks migrating south. The Siberian Swan population moves south at this season as well, though not as far as the geese, just to the relative warmth of a European winter...

Madam Paddy has expanded and built up a thick undercoat of furand is scoping out the warm spots in the house where she can stay out of the drafts - there aren't many, but she's making sure - and keep comfortable between meal breaks, snack attacks and toilet visits...

I begin to suspect a cold winter ahead.
