Yet another busy two days down at Farlington; Monday was spent with the hardy Beechcroft Team trimming some of the bramble banks in weather that can only be described as mizzle (the sort of fine rain that soaks you through very slowly) & yesterday I was working in the same area, cutting back the same bramble but with the equally enthusiastic Farlington Team.
At lunch we were treated to an aerial display from a Marsh Harrier over the reedbed. This was the second time I’ve seen it this week after seeing it in the same place on Monday morning.
The site is also awash with colourful interesting fungi;
These were all found in scruby woodland, full of bramble, hawthorn and elder. If anyone can ID them I’d be very interested so please leave your comments.
In other news all the cows have now left the reserve & the Red-breasted Goose has been reported to still be grouping with the other Canadas and Brents on the main marsh.
