Out and about in October

I am sure the older you get the quicker the years seem to fly by, cannot believe that its the 1st of November tomorrow and the silly season is just around the corner.... bah humbug!
Anyway October has been a good month with the camera, getting out photographing the Red Deer rut has been great, the first big high tides of the Autumn down at Parkgate gave good views of Short Eared Owls, I have spent some time down on the beach at Criccieth photographing Turnstones, and one of my favourites those ever so cute Red Squirrels.
Also the Autumn is such a colourful time of the year, and I have visited Nant Mill Woods a couple of times, the woodland floor is carpeted with
Bit of a mixed bunch but thats how it rolls at the moment, but as winter approaches I view it with great anticipation as new photographic opportunities appear..... lots to look at happy viewing :-)

  5. Jim Corbett National Park is the oldest national park in India and was established in 1936 as Hailey National Park to protect the endangered Bengal tiger. It is located in Nainital district of Uttarakhand and was named after Jim Corbett who played a key role in its establishment. The park was the first to come under the Project Tiger initiative.
    The park has sub-Himalayan belt geographical and ecological characteristics. An ecotourism destination, it contains 488 different species of plants and a diverse variety of fauna. The increase in tourist activities, among other problems, continues to present a serious challenge to the park's ecological balance.
    Corbett has been a haunt for tourists and wildlife lovers for a long time. Tourism activity is only allowed in selected areas of Corbett Tiger Reserve so that people get an opportunity to see its splendid landscape and the diverse wildlife. In recent years the number of people coming here has increased dramatically. Presently, every season more than 70,000 visitors come to the park.
    Corbett National Park comprises 520.8 km (201.1 sq mi) area of hills, riverine belts, marshy depressions, grasslands and a large lake. The elevation ranges from 1,300 to 4,000 ft (400 to 1,220 m). Winter nights are cold but the days are bright and sunny. It rains from July to September.
    Dense moist deciduous forest mainly consists of sal, haldu, peepal, rohini and mango trees. Forest covers almost 73% of the park, 10% of the area consists of grasslands. It houses around 110 tree species, 50 species of mammals, 580 bird species and 25 reptile species.
