A few butterflies in the garden today, Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral and Peacock. The numbers of Marmalade Fly seem to be diminishing a bit, though there still good numbers about but they seem to be getting replaced with Seven-spot Ladybirds, the numbers are building up nicely. Also in the garden was another young Chiffchaff and the Nuthatch was heard in the paddock again, having been quiet (or gone) since late spring.
A few of the fungi seen yesterday included
|Macrolepiota procera - Parasol Mushroom|
|Amanita crocea – Orange Grisette|
