2nd February


A trip to the forestry.


Dry but dull.


This Willow bud has opened, making it very early, indeed. Quite a few other Willow specimens were in the same state, but Beech was resolutely closed.


This looks like a skull of some sort, but it's actually the husk of a  Puff-ball fungus. There were quite a few specimens in this location.


This Parmelia (sulcata, I think) was growing in moss on a Willow. The tree was covered in mosses and lichens.

One or two specimens of the Tremella fungus are still present. The close-up image on the right shows dark dots inside the jelly, which I presume are the ascii, or sporing structures.
