Long tails

It's that time of year again. The first year's damsons are in, slightly early to protect them from a local fox who has a taste for them. In the back the cooking apples are starting to fall off the tree, so I'll harvest them shortly (and we'll have an apple and damson crumble at the weekend I think).

The Katy eating apples will be eating shortly, a week maybe, and the Cox's Orange Reds are coming on nicely for October. The Katies are cropping heavily.

And we had some more garden visitors this morning: three long tail tits that came through briefly. Here are a couple of them caught on the Katy tree.
