More mushrooms, less birds

Very few birds on the water at lunchtime with only the adult Mute Swans, a few Mallard and one Tufted Duck visible. The higher water since the deluge probably prevents those other dabblers from feeding and they've made alternative arrangements for the moment.

Loads of fungus around, and a new batch of common Puffball is up on the edge of Compartment 6. Some others unidentified as yet, too.I've been in love with puffballs since a friend of mine brought one into school many (many!) years ago. They're just so otherworldly.
