Autumn in Old England

While the leafers are singing the praises of New England in the Fall, let’s not forget Autumn in Old England.

 
Top billing in New England goes to the Acers with the Sugar Maple struck in lights, while the mighty Beech reigns supreme in the UK.
 

No country house of note would be without its Beech-lined drive for spectacular effect at this time of year.
 
The autumn leaves along the approach to Mote Park in Maidstone, Kent, showed beautifully with a low-slanting November sun.
 
Just beyond the end of the drive is the lake and since this is a bird blog after all, I took a moment to fulfil my obligation with a quick visit to see the Black-headed Gulls.
