An autumnal walk in the Wet Wood

The first hints of frost have coloured the aspen in the Wet Wood.

This morning I saw migrating redwings passing through. They paused for a while in some trees near my house and then flew on.

The beavers have been having a go at this grey alder. The left trunk is snagged on another tree and I cannot remember what has happened to the right stem. Perhaps it will fall later without further intervention by the beavers?

Water levels are relatively low at present and the beaver have had to do some dredging in the canal that leads into the willow woodland. The tributary canal has been blocked with the spoil that they have taken from the main canal.

The planting spade is mine.
