The days are getting shorter and my outings closer to home, making me pay more attention to nature and wildlife in London rather than trying to escape the tentacles of the city.
So last week-end, having dropped plans for a microadventure, I decided to take a walk close to home. I didn’t want to go to Kew Gardens, or the Thames, or even Richmond Park. They are all great places for a wander but I had walked around them many times for the last few months. It was time I explored somewhere new. I chose Palewell Common and Fields.
Camera strapped along my chest and recorder stuck in my pocket, I went in search of the sights and sounds of autumn last days at a local common. Here is what I’ve found (click on the photos for full sizes):

This post was prompted by the November theme, ‘Autumn Watch’ of the Outdoor Bloggers.
The name sound familiar? I went on a walk in the Peak District with a few of them last May. The Outdoor Bloggers directory has grown quite a bit since then. Check it out and be sure to join us.
