TREE DOWN!!

Tree down on the greenway. Unfortunately discovered at the end of our workday, so it will have to wait until next time to be cleared.

However, easy to walk around it, so not a problem.

Aaron, Linda, Howard and myself made it today. We tackled the southerly part of the big clearing and just took the last remaining bit of scrub out, before the path levels and then goes onto embankment.

We widened the path on the left hand side up to the tree in the centre of the path.

Looking back from that tree, we then switched to clearing the right hand side and really scalloped the cutting. If we scallop back and forth, left to right, we will create loads of micro-habitats that will be warm and full of wildlife.

Looking towards Rugby, this clearing has a lot of potential for excellent wild flowers in the spring.

Fungi finds are this strange looking thing.

Lastly, we had a few interested onlookers today.

Good work today and only a month of cutting back left before the bird-nesting season starts. When we get into April the main focus will be removing all the tree stumps on the path.

    The fungi are Jelly Ear again, but these are younger so still small.
    I notice on the WAB fungus forum, Geoff F say’s your photos of the 17th are Panaeolus semiovatus (which grow on horse or cattle manure only) … I’m afraid he is wrong, and they are not Mycena’s either … they are Parasola conopilus (formerly called Psathyrella conopilus) which often grow in large numbers like this.
    The photograph below it showing a white fungus is Lepiota cristata (Stinking Dapperling)
