Early Winter

Teal- about 150 present

? A few of these on the mound

The farm is full of gulls again which means winter is taking over. The Cetti's was singing this morning. Not a lot else.
Saw a first winter Caspian Gull a couple of days ago from the obs. Only a few moths in the trap recently - including November Moth and a couple of micros.
Winter sucks!

I think the fungus is a Shaggy Inkcap, Peter.
There seems to be loads of them at Holmethorpe at present.

It's in my Food for Free book Graham. I might try one!

From what I've read, Peter, they are only really edible when young and I don't think I would risk eating one.

I'm more worried at Beddington about what they might be growing in!
