Fun(gi) day

It seems fungi are like buses, wait around for ages and nothing, and then suddenly loads come along all at once.

What a great haul – I could of rooted around in the undergrowth for hours once I got the bit between my teeth. Plenty of brackets, jelly brain and others.

Aaron, Linda and myself donned our wildlife-superhero suits and tackled the fallen trees between The Bear and Berrybanks. It was quite depressing to see all the litter around The Bear bridge, but I guess we just need to get into a regular litter-pick routine to keep on top of it.

This is up and down pics, personally I would have it three times as wide…

…ha-ha!! I am joking!!

We cleared all the dumped scrub off the path and cleared up the litter. We probably need to spend a good few days around this section to clear it up. However, Andrew, who made us our super bird-boxes last year, has kindly made us some more. So we need to get them up ASAP. We have eight to put up so my electric screwdriver is on charge!!

The bird-feeder clearing has been hammered by the local grey squirrel population. I have seen some slender steel poles to replace the rough wooden ones that the squirrels can climb up. As soon as we change them over the bird-feeder area will be functional again. It is all about learning as we go and trying to be as economical as we can, with our funding.

Thanks to all today, great conversations, friendships being formed, this is what life is all about – doing things where we can make friends and stuff!!!

Next one is next Wednesday with a 10:30 start and then try to get into a rhythum of Wednesdays and Sundays.

We have one youngster doing a Duke of Edinburgh Bronze award this year. We need more, so if you are reading this and are looking for something to do, or have children looking for something, we have successfully got groups of youngsters through their Bronze and Silver awards in the last few years. I am fully CRB/DBS checked and certified.

And thanks for the fun(gi) day….
