What’s happening to the oaks?

(See what happens when it rains? Nothing to do but run the computer batteries down.)

Does anyone know what’s happening to the oaks around these parts? I was concerned to see so much leaf browning when I came back to the quinta this time, and have noticed it on a lot of other oaks in the area. A neighbour said it happened last year too. Whatever it is, it looks fungal. It seems to extend all the way up to the N17 with some really dead looking trees round Coja.

Oak fungal disease?
