I've been a bit slow with my 'conker' photography this year. I found these beauties under a horse chestnut tree near Snaresbrook, the nuts themselves look in great condition but sadly the leaves on the tree less so. Let's hope the tree gets well for next year.
Meanwhile I found this guy opposite in the garden, not sure where he came from as I do not have a 'conker' tree. The half shell over the nut reminded me of the occasional Wanstead hedgehog.
