Autumnal

Corprinus lagopus...Carlisle park
Dead man's fingers...Carlisle park

I was tempted to go birding up the coast today but decided to go fungi hunting through the woods around Morpeth. There was a nip in the air and it really felt like autumn depite the sunshine. Lots of leaves changing colour and many falling to the ground. A few plants still in flower such as Devils bit scabius, Dames violet and Goldenrod but most things appear past their best. Plenty of fungi around but only posted a couple of pics.

Ah, autumn has arrived already in Northumberland and Nigel's out finding fungi - great!

I was sorry to miss you on my trip, but was ably hosted by Stewart and John, thanks. If you guys are ever down south.....
