I spotted a Jay in a field next to the wood. Usually I just see a flash of blue feathers as they fly away, or hear them screaming, but this one seemed quite happy to hop around as I photographed it.
There was still plenty of fungus around ....

|There were signs of new fungus growing|
|A clump of puffballs that had released their spores and|
were turning to mush
These were growing in a line along a fallen tree trunk.
While I was there, I popped over the road to Brush Hill as I'd heard the sheep had been put out to graze on the grass slope. Keeping the grass short is great for the wildflowers that thrive there in the summer, so I'm glad to see them there. What a great view they have as well!
