Frog at the wedding

We have been down to Kent for Catherine and Peter's wedding. Despite taking many wedding pictures I found time to grab this shot of a Common Frog in their pond.

We also saw an impressive bracket fungus on a tree near the hall where the wedding ceremony was held.

Ravenscar Bay

We had a very enjoyable walk at Ravenscar in North Yorkshire on our Wedding Anniversary yesterday. We explored the old Alum workings. The weather was beautiful with little wind and hot sun.

Baal Wood

I had a very enjoyable walk today round Baal Wood reserve in Wolsingham in the company of five members of the Low Barns Photography Group.

There were very few birds and butterflies but we saw a wide range of early autumn fungi including Oyster mushroom, Sulphur Tuft, Ear fungus, Giant Polypore ,Stinkhorn and King Alfred's Cakes.

Fruit from the garden

We picked 5 pounds of redcurrants and over a pound of blackcurrants from our garden bushes this week.
