Another chestnut disappointment?

Once again, for the second year in a row, the chestnuts are dropping early and haven't properly developed.

Although there are still plenty on the tree, I don't know whether they will stay on long enough to fill. it's hard to tell whether this lack od development of he fruit is due to the cool, wet Summer or the long dry Autumn.

Odd, really, since the hedgerows are heavy with berries and the apples have done well. Other fruits, such as damsons and plums, haven't been very prolific, but I put that down to the bumper crop last year.
