The photograph above was taken a few days ago, along the first stage of the Wom Brook Walk, adjacent to Rookery Road. It portrays an autumnal scene, with some tree leaves beginning to change colour, prior to dropping from their tree.
There are examples of mosses growing on the willow that overhangs this particular bend in the Brook. The Brook itself is slightly discoloured by mud washed from the banks following the latest rainfall. Depsite the muddy appearance of the Brook, essential nutrients are being washed along the Brook to nourish other plants.
