Late post

Meadow waxcap...Abbey meadows

Russula sp...possibly cyanoxantha...Borough woods

Hairy bindweed...Ulgham grange

Peacock caterpillar...Pegswood moor

Strange beastie on Valerian...Borough woods

Bitter bolete...Cottingwood

I haven't been away anywhere but with personal committments and shift work I have been left with very little time. Some of the above pics are from the last couple of weeks. The Russula fungi group are difficult to identify at the best of times but I believe it is russula cyanoxantha or Charcoal burner but a more olive colour.

Nice post, Nigel.
The strange beastie is Strangalia maculata.

Thanks Dean, I was relying on yourself or Stewart for insect ID.
