17 October 2013. To the woodlands of the Heempark and Oud-Poelgeest. Near the Heempark entrance, a tree stump with various fungi species, including artist’s bracket and Armillaria mellea fungi. A bit further, plenty of amethyst deceiver and Inocybe rimosa fungi.
A robin sings.
A deceiver fungus. Reddish colour today, as, though it is dry now, it has been raining for days. If the weather is dry, then this species looks brownish.
A mallard and a black-headed gull fly past.
One muscovy duck swimming, one on the bank.
On a tree stump, turkey tail fungi.
A bit further, two fly agaric mushrooms. The oldest one does not have a complete hat any more (eaten by slugs?); but the youngest one still has. This species is rare and rather recent here, as it belongs on sandy soils, and this is originally a peaty region. However, sand is often brought in for construction etc.
Then, lots of sulphur tufts around a stump.
In Oud-Poelgeest, sulphur tufts, and a fallen fly agaric.
Armillaria mellea fungi on an old oak tree.
A nuthatch calls.
On the other side of the canal bordering on the woodland, a wren sits on a reed stem, calling.
Back to the Heempark. On a fallen birch tree, birch polypore fungus.
