Puffing and bubbling
As I have been writing this blog about the natural phenomena in Filnore Woods since 2012, there is inevitably a bit of repetition. But that is the way of things. The cycle of the year is a never-ending repetition of itself. Here are two things spotted this week again:
First the Giant Puffball which appears annually in the grass at the welcome area just inside the gate. This is the fruiting body of a fungus Langermannia gigantea, and if someone hadn't kicked it it would have grown even bigger.
My second spot is that the stream, which has been dormant all summer, has woken again following the showers we have been having.
If at any stage this autumn you see the pipe under the stream crossing blocked up, please unblock it to prevent flooding.
