Autumn 2017 Newsletter #2

By mid-October it really should be feeling “Autumnal”, yet the temperature at dawn this morning was a sultry 14 degrees C and now, at midday, it stands at 18!! I have led some great walks this month: as a passionate follower of the Fallow rut it’s really great to share this fascinating and dynamic event, but, this year, maybe due to the high temperatures, it has seemed almost sluggish. We did have a hair-raising moment as a solitary buck sprinted directly towards us one day – he actually jinked away in good time and was merely heading to the lake for a good drink!

This summer, Jonnie Taylor’s countryside activities have been somewhat set upon the backburner. As reported in my last newsletter, I have devoted a large amount of time to training: I spent a glorious week in Scotland learning about the psychological effects of immersion in nature and/or wilderness.

Spring moved into summer in a very comfortable manner - not the usual rain and soggy footpaths and no serious late frosts to wreck the fruit blossoms. Curiously, many of our "Spring" flowers have been more "seasonally" correct - primroses haven't been blooming too early and the May Tree (Hawthorn) is flowering beautifully now.

Welcome to another update from Jonnie Taylor - and, as always, thank you for following! One of the most popular sessions that I run is the "Combi" hikes - these really are a combination of walking, natural history, farming, foraging, bushcraft and even a bit of cooking!

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2017 – a Happy New Year to you! The last entry was titled “Winter 2016” and, of course, it is still winter now – but it's been a pretty good one: we have actually had a run of clear weather with a few hard frosts. This has allowed for some fun photography with clear views, sunrises and sunsets!
