Autumn Colours at Wytham Woods

Wytham Woods near Oxford is well know for its studies in to Badgers and Blue tits.

It is the home to the University of Oxford’s The Laboratory with Leaves

Anyone can visit as long as you apply for one of Wytham woods free permits.

Recently, I was very kindly invited to take an autumn walk through the wood with people from the Zoology Dept.

The idea was to photograph the changing colours of the season but unfortunately as the weather had been warm and with no morning frosts in this area yet, the leaves were still mostly green.

That didn’t matter, we had a great walk around the wood, it was brilliant to meet a new group of people with loads of enthusiasm for nature, and there were plenty of amazing fungi to take photos of.
