Departure lounge ramblings on music, places, climate change and stuff outdoors

Connaught Water turns golden

We took advantage of the end of British Summer Time this morning to get out ahead of the dog walkers and were rewarded with four hours of Epping Forest in golden glory.

Best of all were the dramatic oak trees around Connaught Water. Originally created in 1880, Connaught Water originally served to drain the surrounding forest, but now it is home to a professorial Heron, the odd Great Crested Grebe, and, apparently, Mandarin Ducks, although I have yet to be fortunate enough to see one.

A lovely start to the winter countdown.
