An ash has a “great” outcrop of Dryad’s Saddle or Pheasant Back mushroom.
Not sure it’s a good sign for the Ash it’s growing on – however it will probably die soon anyway. See previous post.
Here’s an article on cooking it. http://foragerchef.com/dryad-saddle-ramen/
On the lawn yesterday there was a half eaten grass snake. A shame but it must have been too slow to get away.
The bottom picture shows the dire effects of Ash die-back (Chalara fraxinea), even on mature trees. We have a few ash which are hundreds of years old – I hope those survive. The copse has many ash trees – it will be devastating to lose most of them.
