Antiques column: The ‘Golden Age’ of the tinplate toy

Wildlife Column: Autumn tints and winter chill…

Wildlife Column: Autumn tints and winter chill…

A few hard frosts at night and the trees are suddenly tinted with glorious arrays of golds, reds, yellows and oranges; the first real touches of winter are on the horizon. Wildlife responds too, and already we have the winter thrushes – fieldfares and redwings – moving through and stopping to feast greedily on berry bushes like hawthorn, rowan, and holly. In gardens, cotoneasters and pyracanthas are firm favourites. Along hedges, woodland edges and riversides, flocks of siskins and redpolls gather noisily to feed in the high branches of alders and birches, with twittering and buzzing sounds tom accompany the feeding frenzy.
