Weather again

Friday, July 29th 2011

The sunshine from yesterday continued this morning.  There was a heavy dew and the spider's webs were covered in fine droplets of water making white patches covering the grass and heather.  These warm, damp conditions are ideal for the growth of fungi and some are beginning to show their fruting bodies.  This particular one, in the conifer plantation, has obviously been enjoyed by a variety of creatures.

 Fly Agaric has been recorded this month.
