Autumn colours from the Knott

From Arnside Knott on an overcast morning after a night when the rain lashed down into the early hours. The view is south west across the wooded headland into Morecambe Bay. The tongue of Humphrey Head pokes out into the Bay, the Furness Peninsular recedes into the far distance.

There were fieldfares and redwings gorging on the yew berries and the whitebeam hips. A flock of redwings flew over me that was so large I at first thought they were starlings until I recognised the distinctive quiet call.

A good forecast for tomorrow.
