Monday 3rd November 2014 - Davyhulme Millenium Nature Reserve

Spindle tree (Euonymus europaeus) fruit.
This almost hidden reserve next to the Manchester Ship Canal is popular with local dog walkers, but worth a visit to see what you can find. We found these spindle trees with their brilliant pink fruit capsules, enclosing bright orange seeds. We had not seen them before.

Shaggy Inkcap (Coprinus comatus)
There were also some wonderful specimens of shaggy inkcap fungus.
