For the nature around us in the UK, August signals a turning tide. Migration is already well underway; flowers are declining, the breeding season is over, birdsong is silent as reserves are building up for the journey or the winter to come. The Swift has barely been with us for three months. They now start heading back south to Africa. 

One flower in full bloom is the Himalayan Balsam, which can tower up to 3 metres above public footpaths with pouched blooms alive with bumblebees and honeybees. As attractive as it may look, Himalayan balsam causes widespread erosion of the river and canal banks in the UK.

Look out for Elderberries. Great for wine or cordial but bitter to eat and get ready to crumble with this year, looking like a bumper harvest for blackberries.
