The autumn equinox is upon us and once again the nights are drawing in.
As the temperature drops, misty mornings and stormy seas become more frequent.
Grey seals are mating now and Atlantic salmon are returning to the rivers of their youth.
The call of wild geese can be heard as they return in their thousands from more northerly climes.
Autumn gold will soon be upon us and the wild harvest of berries and fruits will abound.
