Fungi at Warren Hill

There are earthballs (Probably the common earthball scleroderma citrinum) everywhere! Is it always like this or is it an unusual year?

There is also a good crop of another fungus on a dead tree trunk. (right)

This looks like ischnoderma resinosum, a fairly uncommon species.

Welcome to the new blog!

We have moved away from Steyning and now live near Washington Common, north of the A283 Storrington Road. So Petra's walks will be based in a new area. I hope we find just as many interesting things to comment on.

The first things have come up in my new garden! This common darter was a regular visitor over the second week of September.

Where do I Walk?

Mainly around the National Trust land at Washington Common and Warren Hill in West Sussex. I also spend some time around my old Steyning walks and other interesting places in West Sussex.
