Below is a closer image of it. It's sort of ruffled and the edges are laced with white.
This is another fungi (pictured below), growing on a tree stump in the garden. Does anyone know what it is? It looks quite disgusting - like some form of excrement! I hope neither of these fungi are poisonous because of our dogs.
Charlotte (daughter) and I went out for a walk today - we even got the old man to come too! The picture below shows a tiny nest - there were three of them within yards of each other. I wish my photo' could show just how tiny they were. At a guess, I'd say they were about four inches in diameter and they were built mostly with sheep's wool. :D Does anyone know which bird might have built these perfect little nests?
Could these be the very sheep that provided the building materials for the above abode? They were in a nearby field. I love the ones to the left, with the white faces. :) This is between Oakenshaw and Brancepeth.
