Birds, Frost, Fungi and Work

Wednesday, November 13th 2019

This afternoon Spigot Mere was like a mirror.

A disturbance was noticed across the Mere and a closer look showed that it was a Pied Wagtail having a bath.

I then realised that I was being watched, as another Pied Wagtail walked along the bund of Spigot Mere feeding.  In all there was a flock of about six.

A Grey Wagtail was seen at the lake along with Moorhen and Mallard. 

The morning had started off frosty with tiny ice crystals covering the fungus.

Whilst searching for further photographic opportunities I spotted a Hawthorn berry wedged into a crack in the log, until I looked more closely and realised that it was actually the tiny Eyelash Fungus.  A species that has not been recorded for some time.

Our front lawns are kept in good shape by Colin, who was hard at work edging the different sections.

Sophie and Alex were moving stone for paths to the Bullet catcher.

Inside Catherine and Chris were identifying and filing the photographs.

Many thanks to everyone who worked today, as always it is much appreciated.
