The foray continues

At only four or five mm in height these little red fungi were mighty difficult to find not quite sure if they are match head fungi or of another genus.

The above little fungi I think one of the Stags horn variety were on the same fallen trunk, in a local broadleave area and no where have I found such a wide variety of fungi, mind you along with the abundance of other fruit I suspect it has been a really good year for fungi.

As it seemed that everywhere I looked, I could find one type or another sprouting out of the dead and rotting trees and leaves on the woodland floor.

I was tempted to name all of the fingi I had photographed but after going through the reference book I decided that it was such a hit and miss situatiuon I would wait until I could get some confirmations.

This on was found on the Tuesday and by the following morning had a few attendant wee beasties!

Now not had any luck finding these entwined in their mating enbrace I was happy to see it browsing the fungi on this old trunk.

Not to be left out it would seem that this male Kestrel is a right poser whether in the tree or on the ground, to follow, and as you probably know the Golden polver were very much in evidence at Venus Pools dropping in for their wash and brush up, the main flock was estimated to number over or around 800-1000. Not all at the wash point at the same time. Some of the entertainment from the other day this time more pictures and less words, a bonus eh!

Some shots of the Golden Plovers.

There you go, not really sure if a narrative is really warrented but maybe next time?

Cheers for now Paul
