My Patch on Film
Well, here we are in November! Can you believe it? BBC's 'Autumnwatch' has been on our screens all week, the winds and rains have arrived and the leaves are now falling fast.
Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope you have enjoyed our explorations over the past months; perhaps you have learnt a few things, been inspired to look at your own local area with new eyes, or perhaps have adopted a 'patch' of your own?
Whether you have only recently discovered my ramblings about my local patch, have popped over from my other blog at sophiecosussex.blogspot.co.uk, or have been following the blog since the very beginning, it is fantastic to be able to share this area that I love so much, and its wildlife, with you all.
I always welcome comments, either here or on Twitter (@OakByTheRife) so do let me know your thoughts.
It is with slight amazement that I write that The Oak By The Rife Blog is approaching it's 1st birthday! I started this project 11th December 2014, and so we have nearly completed a full year cycle together, and will soon be heading into our second winter.
As a little celebration of that upcoming anniversary, I decided that it was time for something a bit different. So this week, I have stepped out from my usual position behind the camera, to show you some of my favourite places on The Oak By The Rife Patch in person....
As I typed on that first local patch blog post: "Let's go for a walk"!
