Sunday in the Sun

Phil almost stepped on this Field Mouse up on Cwm Cadlan, there were two present and were very close to going up Phil's trouser leg.

If I ever wished I had a better lens it was now, these two Kites put on a brilliant show and we watched them for about 10 minutes  .
Phil said this reminds him of a fellow Valley birder and I could not put a finger on which one .
I went up behind Sierra Pines too look for some Fly Agaric which I found last year but they were broken and all over the floor. There was a real big one which I think would have been the biggest I have seen. Also there was patch which looked like spiders and on looking closer found these to be Earth Tongue Fungus.  I put it on Facebook and they said it's Green Earth Tongue, a new one for me and one I have never heard of it .


  1. The mouse photos came out great. You are also telling little porkies, for once I did not mention anything about another member of this blog.

  2. Thank you phil and i just noticed i did not post the dragonfly and i have lost it now and it was a Common Hawker .

  3. it looks like you have a Jellybaby fungi Leotia lubrica amoungst the Green Earth Tongue.

  4. Your right guys that picture is the spitting image of Mike!
