Saturday 29th October 2016
As usual on a Saturday I did my cleaning in the morning and then took the dogs over to Upton Heath in the afternoon. Today Jez decided that we would walk up the Roman Road. But first we had to walk through part of Longmeadow Lane woods, where I found clusters of fungi growing on old tree trunks.
Here are some more. Aren’t they lovely and delicate?
We came out of the woods onto the Roman Road and started to walk up the hill. I took this photo looking back towards the old railway bridge.
On a conifer along the path I found lots of these lovely, colourful fungi. I can’t quite work out what they are though.
We turned off into Pine Springs Nature Reserve and at the side of the path were these two little puff balls.
As usual Jez had to stop and have a rest as we walked through Pine Springs, but I eventually managed to move her on and we came out further up the Roman Road and then turned onto the heath.
At one point Max ran off into the heather and Jez joined him. I don’t know what they’d found, but it certainly held their interest.
We cut across the the Viewpoint, close to which Jez had to have another rest.
And then we walked around the top of the hill and I phoned Chris to come and pick us up.
A year ago today
Max and I went to Upton Country Park where a very high tide had flooded the stream.
