Striped Ladybird etc.

A good day at the weekend saw a number of new species added in less than an hour! First a hawthorn twig gave up a couple of species of fungi, with this nice Melanomma - a pyrenomycete.

and then on finding an old ash tree with some fallen branches the ash specialist fungus Peniophora limitata - a nice easy species in the field with its purpley-grey colour and dark boundaries.

last but by no means least a new ladybird for the reserve dropped out of the neighbours' fir trees that overhang the reserve at the cottage - Striped ladybird
