Harvest Day

We woke to find ourselves and a few neighbours in one of those perfect September mist bubbles.

Nothing existed beyond a few tens of yards from where ever you stood but as you moved the mist bubble moved too.

Trainee spiders had been busy with their homework over night as you can see here.

Six moorhens appeared looking for breakfast. Maybe the seventh is still about but that was the first time for a very long time that I have seen so many together.

As you can see the chicks are as big as the parents now.

Soon the sun burned off the mist and as the corn dried the harvesters appeared about 11 o'clock.
Well harvester actually. Once his friends had helped ferry the vehicles to the field one man started to harvest the wheat field on his own.

It was all in and some of the straw was bailed by 9 o'clock that evening.

There are more photos on facebook of a really pretty September day.

We look forward to some clearer shots of the deer across the now harvested field so long as they are not too frightened without the cover of the wheat.
