Some pics of fungi taken around Morpeth over the past couple of days.
After an upland walk yesterday I checked over another patch a bit nearer to home; the old opencast at Stobswood. The prairie like habitat holds few species at the moment but it is a forever changing habitat and it is always worth having a walk around. The only notable things were 3 Yellowhammers, 79 Lapwing and a mixed Gull flock on the pools beside the B1337. 44 Pink footed Geese flew low over the pools but didn't land. The other pool held more wildfowl with 13 Mute Swans, 26 Wigeon and single numbers of Mallard, Gadwall and Tufted ducks.
