Stags Horn lichen

Thursday, November 12th 2009

It was a case of 'deja-vu' today as work continued weeding out the Silver Birch and Gorse along the access road. Although it seems that we are taking down a lot of trees at the moment, this is vital work to keep the reserve from becoming too heavily wooded. Many birds, insects and flowers all benefit from these open glades.

Although the trees are now bare there is plenty of colour everywhere. The damp weather suits lots of different plants and fungi. This Stags Horn lichen was found growing close to the 'vole' ponds on the discovery trail.
