Today I again went to Southampton Common in the evening, as the light was starting to fade. The birds were starting to roost. It had been many weeks since I last viewed this. But my main action turned out to be at the beautiful secluded "beech grove", on the way to the common. Earlier, other users had collected its fallen tree-branches for their convenience for a pic-nick, gathered around the center for a fire. Since then, I had put up with it, but now was a time to open the grove's former beauty. So I settled down to drag the branches to their previous stands at the edge of the grove (taking care not damage myself with the heavy ones!). A satisfying evening.
