I decided to check the canal to see if there was anything of interest, luckily the wind dropped to a gentle breeze.
I was on the verge of packing it in for the morning when a jay appeared from the undergrowth, it was feeding on acorns on the ground.
I dropped them and Mrs Wildlife off at the turning to the Cavendish Pavilion and drove down to Barden Scale to park the car thus avoiding the dreaded and extortionate estate parking charges. The plan was for me to walk downstream to meet them and then we would walk together back to the car.
The autumnal shades on the mature trees were beautiful...
I soon found the team and they were enjoying the hunt, the witches were not too difficult to find!
The pumpkins were numerous and not too hard to locate, gaps in interest were filled with leaf kicking battles and lots of laughter:-)
What a grand way to spend an afternoon!
