Fungi and birds


Today, fungi around the Crailo nature bridge.

On the lake to the north of the bridge: coots, tufted ducks, two little grebes.

A vagrant darter dragonfly sitting on the boardwalk.

Lots of marsh clubmoss growing here, since about five years. If the marsh would not be kept open, it would disappear and give way to forest. A young Scots pine is already here.

Though last week was dry, still many fungi.

This is a video about the yellow-red gill polypore.

On the wood of the nature bridge, yellow-red gill polypore. This saprofyte species occurs often on wood imported from abroad.

A buzzard circles in the air, calling.

Sulphur tufts which dried out because of lack of rain lately.

A clouded agaric circle.

Birch polypore.

A sulphur knight circle.

Slimy milkcap close to it.

Many amethyst deceiver mushrooms. Many of them white instead of purple because of drought.
