A September or October Camino Ingles?

Time of past OR future Camino
2021
I'm considering walking the Camino Ingles at the end of September or maybe beginning of October. Does anyone have experience of walking this time of year? I'm wondering about the weather and accommodations? It is such a short Camino. I'd probably go to both starting points. I saw some complaints that back in April, the Ingles sounded full. I haven't even been home a month from completing the Coastal Portuguese route (Only 1 day of rain) but the Camino is calling me back. I'd probably give myself three weeks to complete the Ingles and to have extra time to explore more (maybe Fatima)
 
Train for your next pilgrimage on Santa Catalina Island, March 17-20
The Inglès WAS full, one of those post's was mine - but it was Semana Santa, the week prior to Easter when Spain goes on holiday. (Which, prior to arrival I knew nothing about!).
There's been a couple of comments recently from people who've just come off the trail, one of whom even felt lonely because of how few people he saw.

I walked the Ingles at that time of year 2019 and it was lovely. Some hot days and some rain nearing Santiago. Not too many people and some delightful albergues. Because I am originally English, I embarked on a slightly bigger view of the Ingles - as the original pilgrims would have rowed/sailed across from England and landed wherever they could on the north coast (see The Camino Voyage documentary). I explored some of those small bays and settlements first (eg Viveiro) as I made my way to Ferrol. Enjoy!
 
Ideal sleeping bag liner whether we want to add a thermal plus to our bag, or if we want to use it alone to sleep in shelters or hostels. Thanks to its mummy shape, it adapts perfectly to our body.

I walked it in October 2019 and had a wonderful time. The weather was great but being Galicia, plan for rain. No trouble with accommodations and ran into only a handful of pilgrims each day. A very relaxing Camino after completing the Frances a couple of days prior. Easy to get to Ferrol from Santiago by train with a connection in A Coruna.
 
The Ingles is my therapy Camino. Easy flight UK to Coruna (a boat would be more fun but the local yacht club is full of wusses). 5 days to Santiago, 5 days back, optional days in Santiago. Last time I caught mass, said hello to his bones and was back in Sigueiro in time for supper.
I’ve walked it in spring and autumn. My favourite is late September early October. Cheap flights, mushrooms in the woods: even the occasional pilgrim 😉
