It doesn’t get light here till just before nine in the morning. I take the dogs a wander in the twilight at around the back of eight. It was really frosty this morning and I noticed what I thought was a fungus. It looked like cotton wool growing on dead sticks in the woods. Some of it was about two inches thick. It was like spun ice and not a fungus at all. I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ll try for a photograph tomorrow.
Mid morning today I was out again, I found the Goldeneye ducks but couldn’t get close.
I have nothing planned for tomorrow but may go out looking for the Wild Goats. They are about but the very devil to find in a hundred acres of woodland.
I have an unpaid job. I have to get snaps of as much wildlife as I can and present them something like this. They are going in a guide for Grockles to borrow. It could be quite a big job as they are all going for high resolution print at 200mm2.
For the booklet to be any use to numpties like me then it will have to show front back and side views. It could be an interesting project. Fortunately many birds look and act the same despite them being male and female. I find it similar to Homo sapiens in certain areas of southern England.
Have a good weekend. This cold weather is forecast to last for a few days. It is Happy Weather.
