16th December


Bridge over River Deele.


Mostly dull with showers.

Continuing my theme from Nov 22, the fruits of Ivy continue to change size and colour. Only the fully mature ones remain to be photographed.


Two specimens of Grimmia pulvinata, with the right-hand one showing new capsules emerging. The two sporing growths to the rear and right belong to a hidden specimen of Tortula muralis.



Tortula muralis continues to be the most common moss on wall tops.


The identification for this one is proving troublesome, yet it's one of the most common mosses, appearing on walls and tree branches. Specimen about 15 mm. across.
