There is an autumnal feel about the fields and hedgerows. Perhaps it is the ripening fruit that gives the game away. Apples were hanging heavily from the trees on Matt Moser's land when I visited yesterday. They are not intended for human consumption but they will be allowed to fall and act as food for thrushes and other birds. Insects too will batten on the rotting fruit and small mammals such as field mice will also tuck in. And larger creatures such as badgers won't want to miss out.
