Fungi and Fings

Cloudy, 14°, light ESE.

Loren and I decided on a trip to Wittenham Woods today with a very autumnal feel in the air and reflected in the wood with leaves constantly falling.

Relatively quiet bird wise however 20+ Redwing, several Siskin and Redpoll overhead, a Sparrowhawk and a couple of Goldcrest of note.

Quite a bit of Fungi on show including a rather large Puffball that we found.

Have not id’d all the fungi yet as I am a bit rusty on that front.

Thanks to Loren for all but one of the pics.


  1. I can see Stump Puffball, Candlesnuff, Birch Bracket and Honey fungus in the pics, and that Giant Puffball would make very good eating!
