Autumn Nature Challenge πŸπŸ¦ŠπŸ¦”

Who can get the most points? Let’s find our Autumn Nature Champion! The winner(s) will get a custom made tote bag with pockets from an autumnal fabric of their choice.

Photo evidence required - ones taken prior to the challenge can not be used. You can post things as you find them and add up your points. You only get points for each thing once (so posting two green leaves won’t get you any extra). Real things only - no plastic halloween bats or supermarket mushrooms please.

Challenge closes end of October!

Looks like us city dwellers are at a distinct disadvantage. No wild owls in central London!

You’ve got an advantage with foxes and probably deer which are big scorers though!

There used to be a barn owl on the edge of the village but it disappeared a couple of years ago :slightly_frowning_face:

Haven’t seen one since and I’m pretty rural.

Amazing! Can I recruit the cheeksters to help?

I’ll have my camera ready next time I see a deer parading down Oxford Street

V nice idea (and that’s coming from someone who hates Autumn!) - I’ll see if I can snap some of these things if/when I am down at my parents’ in the middle of nowhere next.

Better get started on the spreadsheet :grinning:

Also can’t edit the original post, but please caption your images with the list item(s) just to make my job easier,especially if it contains multiple ones.

Don’t make me tap the sign…

(nice picture though!)

Here’s just a few of the autumnal fabrics you could soon be sporting in the form of a AB original.

Okay, some aren’t exactly autumnal, but they still have a kind of vibe.
