Fungi at work

We left some woodpiles last winter after doing some thinning.  They have begun to sprout fungi – busy recycling the wood.  Two different piles, two different type of wood – sallow & oak.  Photos below show them, although we haven’t identified them yet.  The first example is on sallow, the other two on oak.

Woodpeckers the tree fellers

In the post for July 2012 we showed the series of holes drilled by a great spotted woodpecker.  The recent gale found the weakness and this is the result.

The tawny owl is back – roosting in its favourite spot.
