A 7.30 start today, in grey light that was certainly not good for photography. A solitary single grey heron just merits inclusion here. A large covey (12+) of red legged partridges were flushed from a footpath across the golfcourse whilst overhead fieldfares numbered in excess of 100, heading south west. Several pied wagtails were observed on the greens and 12 redwings were seen along the Ridge footpath, heading west. Good views of green and great spotted woodpecker were had as well as plenty of sightings of skylark.
Another good find were several shaggy inkcap fungi. Unfortunately these were past their best for eating, but worth looking out for more examples in better, younger condition. Very tasty fried with a little butter. However, do not use this photo as a guide to identifying them as there are others that are similar that are poisonous!
