Upon this blasted heath …

5 Jan

Well hardly, this is the well grazed almost manicured common land that is Beverley Westwood and much of what you see here is a golf curse. This was taken sometime ago so it’s a good bet that that wreck of a tree is no longer there especially as it was being used as a swing by the locals. Far away, off on the horizon you can just make out (with a magnifying lens) the old black mill.

Festive fun

26 Dec

And how did you spend your Christmas morning? Why trying to identify this fungus since you ask. And did you succeed in your mycological quest? Erm, no. The best I can come up with is that it’s a bracket fungi (well, d’oh!) possibly an Alder Bracket though, as all the guides say, identification is tricky.  These guys are sprouting out of that dead chestnut tree I posted a while back on the ‘decay’ theme day .
Here they are with a bit of colour.

The weekend in black and white should be here if it hasn’t been consumed by all the seasonal goings-on.

East Park

12 Dec

As I often do at this time of year I visited East Park to see if the goosanders had arrived but I didn’t see any. However I have heard that there several at another park over in west Hull maybe they just fancied a change of scenery. There were still plenty of seagulls on the lookout for a free lunch.
The weekend in black and white has snooken up on us again and it’s here.
