It's not Autumn any more, but now the snow has cleared (well it has where I am) it's time to throw yourself back into the great outdoors. This BBC Autumnwatch page with several videos contains notes on bat tracking, wild flowers and bird ringing.

Personally I'm off wassailing tomorrow in a local orchard. Wassailing you ask? It's where you go places in a boat with no engine. Not really – I jest – it is in fact an ancient tradition to bless the forthcoming year's apple harvest. I'm not into the superstition, but it's a fun community event all the same and currently regaining in popularity in the UK.
