Beefsteak fungus, Aylmerton Pond
It’s been a day for local wildlife. It started with an obliging Spotted Flycatcher this morning at the allotment, showing well in the hedgerow on the boundary with Running Free Farm. Also a Chiffchaff in the same bush. At lunchtime, superb views of Willow Emerald Damselfly at the village pond. Several emerging Beefsteak fungi on the oaks around the pond.
Compared to Simon’s, my own rather mediocre photo, of a Willow Emerald at the village pond
