Weather - gusty with dark rain clouds, but most of journey enjoyed bouts of bright, hot sunshine. Wildlife - not much; one or two drowsy Red Admirals, the last butterfly of summer.
Bad weather brewing in from the West, overlooking wheat fields. Later it stormed, with heavy downpours and thunder.
High point - The warm winds buffeting the trees.
Low point - running over a large yellow and black striped dragonfly; it was already dead, but I felt terrible all the same.
