Friday Fungi at Strumpshaw, 21 April 2023

Acting on a very kind tip-off from Steve Judd, Belinda and I had a stroll at Strumpshaw Fen this afternoon.

Along the 'Sandy Wall' I quickly found both species I wanted to see - Thimble Morel and Vinegar Cup. Both pretty scarce it was nice to see some spring-fruiting fungi for a change. On a walk around the eastern half of the reserve we also had numerous Willow Warblers and also my first Sedge Warbler of the year. Insects were also good with Clarke's Mining Bee in the usual spot and also at the sandpit in the woods. Speckled Wood was also seen.
