Last Monday we re-visited a site we had first been to in August, specifically to look for fungi. We had a very successful walk, and the current total stands at 78 which is very good for this year. Mos ...

This Monday I made it to our walk - the first for a month! We had a very pleasant walk round a local nature reserve - a series of paths and flooded gravel pits. Saw some nice looking distant ducks, an ...

I didn't have a walk last week because I had a cold, and this week's walk was cancelled for a variety of reasons. But here is a picture of a Feathered Thorn (Colotois pennaria) which landed on the gla ...
