Autumnal Amble

Saturday, October 6th 2018

Last week we searched the area where the Elfin Saddle Fungi grow.  Not a one to be seen.  This week there were plenty.  Not the typical toadstool type at all!

These, more typical fungi, were releasing their white spores and as they were almost stacked one on top of the other, so those lower down were coated white.

Hardheads or Knapweed can still be found in flower if you search for them.

Sycamore leaves over the beck was a change of colour to those more associated with autumn.

Even more searching and some insects can be still be found.  A Common Green Shield Bug was well camouflaged.
