Bits and bobs

Mosses and lichens galore in Dendles Wood in November, but I haven’t identified them. Also fungi, including candlesnuff fungus and puffballs at Hangar Down and these in Dendles Wood. Two species of Cladonia lichen growing on the granite wall around Cuckoo Ball. The first is Cladonia polydactyla or ‘British soldiers’.   Advertisements


The first sunshine for a week has coaxed out tiny white flowers of hairy bittercress and three-nerved sandwort, as well as early wild strawberry flowers and stag’s horn fungus.
