The purpose of our visit was to look at autumn colour as the trees began to shed their leaves. It is however easier to see colours in the mind than in the field and even harder to take a photograph that truly represents an ideal.
New Forest residents are reminded to leave lights on in their homes if they are going out in the dark winter evenings.
Police are appealing for information after two cows were injured in Fawley. The cows were in a field at the rear of Heather Close when they were hit with airgun pellets. One of the cows needed to have an eye removed due to the injury suffered.
The incidents are believed to have happened between August 10 and October 28. If you have any information about the people responsible for these incidents please contact PC Lee Gott on 101.

Lepe Country Park is a popular destination for many people even outside the school holidays and the car park was busy both when we arrived and on our return. People were sailing on the water of the Solent, cycling along the country lanes, walking around the park or just lounging along the shoreline. The walk around the Lepe Loop was also busy and we met many walkers on our journey.
Exbury Gardens in the New Forest is set to stage its annual Ghost Train during half-term week, Sat 25 October to Sun 2 November, and is appealing for charities, clubs and societies to fashion suitably spooky scarecrows.
