Not been much to report of late, bird sightings remain elusive the only bird of note was a single Treecreeper seen unusually on the edge of the orchard.
An interesting chat with a fungi enthusiast led to him showing me some emerging Fluted Birds nest Fungi coming through the leaf litter, which to be honest I could not even focus on with my eyes let alone try and get a photograph of.
My first Araneus quadratus or Four-spotted Orb Weaver was seen today, the first a probable male taking into account its small size dealing with a freshly caught fly in the long grass alongside the track fence.

Another Araneus quadratus again in the long grass in the meadow looks like a plump female.

Not sure what this fungi is called at the moment, seen growing in the long grass in the hedgerow.
