Sadly a not so frequent visitor to most peoples gardens. We have a hog box at the bottom of the garden, just incase one wants to stay the winter. There are plenty of leaves on the ground for his to build his nest. The temptation of wanting to look is almost unbearable, but you are meant to leave them undisturbed. I just like to think that he is in there, all snuggled up for winter.
Taken at Fingringhoe Wick Nature Reserve.
Of the larger waders, the Spotted Redshank is one of the more dynamic and energetic in its feeding actions, often found leaping and running in shallow water.
Went to Chest Wood at Layer de la Haye this morning. It is such a lovely little wood, and this time of year not that many people around. Autumn is well and truly here, and the leave we falling all around.
The recent rainfall made it perfect for mushroom/fungi hunting, and found these beautiful collection of Fungi.
They are sulphur tuft fungi.
Not sure of the ID of this flower, it was taken at RHS Gardens at Hyde Hall (Which is fantasic BTW). It was in the Australian gardens there, so I am guessing that it is not a natural plant of the UK. The petals felt like plastic which was a strange thing indeed.
