sights and sounds of springtime

11th April 2020, Longhorsley, 8am

A walk through the springtime woods where nature is bursting into life.

Daisy and I both had twitchy ears and eyes.

I spent my childhood wandering around woodland like this and it’s a very comfortable place for me.

I watched a tree creeper for a while and heard my first willow warbler of the year amongst countless different birds singing and calling over the sound of the little stream.

This white stuff is a 'slime mould'  called Enteridium lycoperdon or Cauliflower Slime Mould or False Puffball.  It's about the size of half a tennis ball and the consistency of angel delight. Thanks to Rachael T on Facebook for identifying this for me.
