Re: Peregrines 2019

lovely to see them back at the nest :)
every time i have looked at the cameras, the nest has been empty, and no signs of the birds,
but i'm sure i will be seeing plenty of them once they get started :)

Re: Frogs!

Hello Cjeans, and welcome to the forum from me too :)
do let us know the outcome, and if any more frogs turn up, and if they get around to spawning in your pond :)

Re: Tremella mesenterica

heres my latest find of it,
very small, (the twig it is on is less then the thickness of a pencil) and very bright colour too,
more of a red than orange in my view, no sign of any host fingi on the twig that i could see,

Re: Peregrines 2019

i'd forgotten about those cameras !
i hope the Peregrines are more succesful this year than they were last year,
sad to see all the time the birds put into incubating those eggs, for it all to come to nothing in the end :(

Re: Oaks still retaining their leaves

i've noticed on my dog walks, that the small oaks have kept their leaves on,
while the large, mature ones have shed all theirs,
so it must be something quite normal, as treehugger says :)

Re: the weather

yes, it was the same here this morning too, it made for a very cold dog walk through the frosty landscape,
and although the frost seems to have gone from the cars window and roof, everything else still has a good thick coting of frost here.

Re: Lenzites betulinus

more of them found on todays walk, in the same area as my previous finds of them too, i have been passing them by for a few days now, thinking they were just turkey tail again, but decided to have a closer look, remembering that fungi is not always what it appears to look like :roll: and they turned...

Re: the weather

a good hard frost overnight and still not thawing very much either. temp is around the 2c mark at the moment, the first time the ground has been frozen solid too, but it seems other areas have had worse with snow in places ! made for a brisk dog walk this morning, and glad to be home for a hot drink...
