In 15 years of leading these walks, there have been 3 occasions when no-one showed up due to bad weather. In those cases I did some of the walk by myself and then took a selfie for the post.
This morning there was steady rain but it was neither cold nor windy. How many walkers would brave the rain for a long walk?
This morning’s group:
As I have learned the hard way not to take my camera out in the rain, I took these photos from my car before the walk:
I also took some photos of the very swollen Highland Creek with a little point-and-shoot camera under the shelter of an umbrella.
Despite the rain, we did have some birds. I include photos from previous walks of these 12 species.
We also saw three species of Jewelweed (photos from previous walks).
September strews the woodlot o’er
With many a brilliant color;
The world is brighter than before,
Why should our hearts be duller? – Thomas W. Parsons (1819–92)
