A long weekend up in North Norfolk in our motorhome.
On Friday evening and again on Saturday morning we walked various trails on Holt Lowes/Holt Country Park. In lovely early autumn sun we found quite a bit of interest. Botanically it was great to see plenty of Lesser Skullcap in flower (at it's only Norfolk site) along with masses of Round-leaved Sundew, Marsh Lousewort and a few plants of Heath Milkwort. A late single male Keeled Skimmer was patrolling a pond in the wet valley with Southern Hawker, Migrant Hawker and Common Darter also being seen.
It was fungi that stole the show though with several great finds - Bog Waxcap, Mottled Bolete and Greyshank Bolete on the Lowes were followed by Pale Stagshorn, Petticoat Brittlestem, Woolly Fibrecap, The Flirt, The Sickener, Beefsteak Fungus and Tawny Grisette in the mature woodland of the country park.
Wiveton Downs on Saturday evening yielded not much except Bluefoot Bolete and Suede Bolete and then along Blakeney Bank on Sunday morning a Devil's Coach Horse Beetle showed nicely on the path.
