Red Alert

After posting last weekend with probable Fly Agaric... here are some proper ones from Houghton Moor wood in all their glory. Deadly beautiful.

Plenty of others still to be identified. One of the other interesting specimens seen along the way was this red slime mold type thing. Anyone have any thoughts? Note it is a pine stump.

Birdwise, the Red theme continued with a Red Kite over the woods. Also Buzzard, Marsh and Willow Tit, several Siskins and many Jays.

Fewer dragonflies on the wing in cooler temperatures with singles of Migrant Hawker and Common Darter noted.

Received comment about the lack of bird photos, and too much in the way of mushrooms on here... all in good time is all I can say!
