Autumn returns to the river

leave a comment »


My car is out of action so took my walk up to Terenure to get a few chores done. Weather has got much colder and for walking it’s back into the fleece lined trousers, and autumn weight fleece jacket. Hard to imagine it was T-shirt temperature just a week ago.

I passed these ducks on the way. They were first headed for the waterfall, but quickly turned around and headed back down the river. It looked like this was a method for catching insects. Meanwhile, one sat regally on their own at the top.
