Pulborough Brooks

As we have no bike at the moment we keep finding myself at our local patch, Pulborough Brooks. Today it was a beautiful, calm, sunny day after a night with the first frost of the year. Nothing unusual with feathers to be found on the brooks today, but large numbers of the usual inhabitants. On the way back across the brooks there was the continuous sound of a bellowing stag deer. The rut is just starting and he seemed to be in good voice, but all of the shouting seemed to be upsetting the females.

Yellowhammer "little bit of bread and no cheese"!


Bay Bolete (Boletus badius). What a beautiful fungus this is and it was in perfect condition too.

Magic mushrooms (Psilocybe semilanceata). These are classified as poisonous although I am not sure if they can be fatal. They are definitely an hallucinogenic though and as such are a class A drug according to the law. Picking these mushrooms is now a criminal act.
