Standing Stones..

Those who know me know of my fascination for Standing Stones

I was fascinated to see a group of stones at Brockholes Nature Reserve

Stone Circle

 These have been deliberately placed to add interest to the nature reserve but are still very atmospheric.

"...Stone circles appear all over Britain and Europe- some in slightly better repair than others
some differing slightly in orientation or form, all of purpose and origin unknown..."

Autumn Walking...

Today was beautiful crisp day so I headed for Brockholes Nature Reserve for some late Autumn colour

I found the golden glow of Beech and Birch and the bright red promise of Holly Berries

Autumn Colour

And along the path I met  Mole, Toad and Ratty

I also saw 





Coal Tits

Blue Tits


 I was't fast enough to capture them but I did get a view of  a couple of swans hiding in the reeds
