Smockmill Common, 3 September 2023

A Sunday stroll around both the dry and wet woodland sections of Smockmill Common near Saxlingham Nethergate. 

A couple of nice insects in the form of the attractive copper-coloured beetle Rainbow Greenclock, Poecilus versicolor and the fly Tachina fera were in the open marshy section where I also found the fungi Reed Rust growing on the living leaves of Common Reed. Other fungi included plenty of Wood Woollyfoot, Southern Bracket, Cramp Ball, Jelly Ear, Rusty Porecrust and the orange slime mould Tubifera ferruginosa.
