Autumn is the perfect time to stroll around a park and breathe in the sharp chill of the unfamiliar cold air, while gazing at the multi-coloured leaves scattered along the pathways that bury the last remnants of wildlife before they hibernate for winter.

Robert Stapleton paid a visit to Cassiobury Park, in Watford, this week, to capture the start of the new season and managed to take snaps of various birds including an egret, as well as swans and even a robin.
