Nice pictures Henry. We don't get damsel flies as nowhere near water, but I have seen the more common blue ones in some places, although never that one. Our bees are certainly foraging something, so although can't see it because it is in the top of a tree, our ivy could be out too. Pretty little fungus, and one I suspect is thought to be 'uncommon' because most people don't notice it. We have had some magpie inkcap in the wood again, which is supposed to be fairly uncommon.

Nice snaps Buzzy. That ivy, the wasps go mental for it around our way, it sounds like there are thousands in there when we walk by.

Yesterday we went to a very local wood. Mainly it was a fungus day, but we did hear (and see occasionally through the tree canopy) some young Buzzards with one or more of their parents. There seemed to be a lot of calling which we interpreted as "Feed me! Feed me!

Amongst the fungi we found quite a lot of Dead Man's Fingers (Xylaria polymorpha)




which I didn't know until yesterday are white underneath the black skin. "A bit like coconut." somebody said. "Smells like coconut, too." said somebody else, but the only person who could detect the coconut smell was the one who uses coconut oil hand cream!

There were also some of these:




the Trooping Crumble Cap (Coprinellus disseminatus).

Brilliant name. I reckon the Queen would be much happier if they changed The Trooping of the Colour to The Trooping of the Crumble.
