Another damp and misty day. Decided to take the kids and Bennyboy to Druridge bay country park. I thought I would have a look at the dunes; a bit early for some of the speciality plants but I found a few flowers out such as Purple milk vetch and Common storksbill. The water in the dune slacks look good and it won't be long before the water crowfoots are out. The best find was Morel (above). I have never seen this fungi before but I have been looking for it in woodland; it's usual habitat but the dune slacks are great places to find all sorts of things you normally find in other habitats. On the bird front there were 7 stonechats, several Sedge Warblers and a Tree pipit in the dunes and 72 Tufted duck on the lake. If the weather improves I will be out and about tomorrow....day off and the kids are back at school!
