Fungi Magic in Autumn
This week’s circular pub walk is a short 2 1/2 mile walk from Watersmeet, up through Barton Wood for a fungi foray amongst the beech nuts & then Trilley Wood, Trilley’s Ridge to the Blue Ball & back down Chiselcombe.
No photos of the great views this time as I had my head down looking through the leaf litter but the view are looking pretty spectacular as the Autumn colours are just starting to show.
Also in, Barton Wood, I came across 2 skulls together. One was definitely a crow but I’m not sure what the mammal skull with it was from.
In Trilley Wood, I found a kestrel’s wing which is a shame as it will be from the family of 3 kestrels I’ve been watching all summer hunting between Countisbury and Barna Barrow – what would be able to catch a kestrel?
Finally, in the fields coming over Trilley’s Ridge, I came across a Devil’s coach horse scurrying through the grass.
Enjoy your Autumn in Exmoor!
