When Max met Max

Monday 9th November 2015

Monday morning saw Max and I walking over to Upton Heath as usual. This morning Jez decided to stay in bed rather than join us. You may recall the reflected trees photo from Saturday. Well this is the pond that they were reflected in.

There's a new pond on the heath

That line of trees to the right in the photo is where the old railway line was.

When we got to the pond today it was already occupied – by Max.

That’s Max the Golden Retriever. My Max soon joined him. Here are the two Max’s.

After playing for a while, and chatting with Max’s owner, we left the pond and walked through the old pits, where I was surprised to see this Fly Agaric.

There are still Fly Agaric about

I thought it was getting a little late for them. It must be the mild weather.

Further on round on the lower heath you could tell we had had a lot of rain as one of Max’s favourite puddles had re-appeared.

Big puddle time

After that, of course, he had to play in the pool beside the boardwalk.

Along the Roman Road, in Longmeadow Lane woods, most of the leaves are now off the trees.

And I’ll leave you today with a shot across Creekmoor Ponds, taken as we walked home.

Those trees still seem to have most of their leaves on them.

A year ago today

We had a Sunday afternoon walk on Canford Heath.
