Fungi.

slimy One of my favourite fungi today in the beautiful Tonmawr area of the Afon Valley – Slimy Beech Caps. This particular Beech tree was carpeted with this species, the most I have ever seen growing in one place.

A new lifer.

This stunning Spotted Crake has been present at Slimbridge for the past few days, showing on the dragonfly pond just opposite the Van de Bovencamp Hide. Well worth the trip up this morning.
