Morning Mist

We are now approaching the time when, following wet weather and a cool still night, the Forest Park is swathed in an early morning mist.

The rising sun creates some stunning landscapes when the light begins to shine through the mist, as per the photograph above.

With cones heavy on the trees, this is also a really good time to see Crossbills high in the canopy. Listen out for their high pitched calls as they move around in small groups feeding on the plentiful seeds.
