Tonight we change the clocks back one hour, but it's not just the time that's a-changing. After loitering around for so long, summer has finally taken its leave. The weather is suddenly very changeable with heavy showers chasing across the green land. The summer birds have all departed and the winter thrushes are just beginning to arrive. And of course the trees are changing colour and then shedding their leaves. Here's a selection of photos recording the changes, taken on recent walks around my home locality, including the compulsory thatched cottage and patient old horse.
