An eye on the winter ahead…

Be prepared! An age-old adage that has served photographer Gordon Ridgewell well over the years… and one that is clearly held dear across the natural world.
Gordon takes up the story: “I had a walk round Bridge End Garden in Saffron Walden on one of the last sunny days to find squirrels stashing away food for the winter at the base of this lovely old tree.
“Seventy-eight years ago, when I was a lad at school, we used part of these gardens for our gardening lessons every Wednesday morning. I was young once, but it’s a long time ago.”
