Circumstances (mainly the timing of the major birthday) meant that most of the month was spent around Oxford - so I was able to add to my extensive collection of pictures taken on local walks near the Oxford house - mostly around the C S Lewis Nature Reserve, Shotover Country Park, the Lye Valley, Mesopotamia and Sydlings Copse - and I did get to watch (mostly from the comfort of a deck chair) the summer slowly tip over into early autumn.
The socially distanced haul north up the M40, M42, M6, M74 etc to Shetland (which included what I think was my 21st night in a Premier Inn and my 64th night on a Northlink ferry) just crept in at the end of the month - and I just had enough time to fit in a walk on Quendale Beach and on Scat Ness before the rain closed in to end the month damply.
