The mushrooms are back!
Looks like it's going to be a good autumn for fungi, with them starting out like this in September:
At last, one I recognise! A Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria):
I'd heard slugs ate fungi, but this is the first time I've caught them in the act, munching on a Brown roll-rim here:
My parents have been visiting, so we did some clearing of overgrown paths in Sweep Wood:
This bit's turned into a tree-tunnel, and after just five summers of growth!
Just a few years ago it looked like this!
We also cut back the regrowth on the stump of a big roadside Sycamore which we had taken down a few years ago - no chance we want this one growing back up again!
Looking forward to getting started with some coppicing soon...
