Blog Postings

The postings will be introductions to each of my life lists. The lists themselves will appear in the side margin. I shall do some postings about particular localities and there will also be postings to provide updates every time I add a new species.
Please note that I am not qualified in any aspect of natural history - there will therefore be occasional (or, apparently, in the case of the hoverflies, a lot of) errors.

Beefsteak Fungus


This is another fungus from my visit to Arrowe Park on 25th September - The Beefsteak Fungus (Fistulina hepatica).

Why do so many people - who would probably never pick or damage a flower - feel the need to destroy every fungus they see? So often in public parks there are damaged fungi everywhere and certainly not all can be blamed on the squirrels.  At least in this case it enabled me to positively identify them and to demonstrate why they are so called.
