Saturday 17th December - Dunham Park

A short morning walk before our Christmas pub lunch. This time in Dunham Park - a popular venue at any time, but particularly around Christmas. Many Fallow Deer around, generally ignoring the human disturbance to their home. Quite damp and a few fungi around. Without Fungalpunk Dave around, the only names we risk offering are Buttercap, with dark stem and cap and pale gills:

Buttercap (Rhodocollybia butyracea)

Not much birdlife seen or heard, but occasional squirrels. Always something of interest, and a little exercise in an attempt to justify an indulgent lunch.
