Meandering Around the Reserve

Sunday, August 18th 2019

Lark and Taurus were not bothered by the wind, although their tails and manes were blowing a little.

I was followed by Taurus hoping that I might just have a treat hidden somewhere, but when nothing appeared he began feeding on the grass.

Bees and hoverflies were out in force flying from flower to flower to feed.  Devil's Bit Scabious is a favoured flower.

 Wild Angelica and Wild Carrot (below) have large, mainly flat, umbels of flowers and these are often covered by many insects of all shapes and sizes.

Warm damp weather is ideal for the growth of fungi and some are begining to appear.

This polypore fungus grows around anything in its way.
