A nice addition to the reserve list which was inside the south pilbox was this Herald moth
None of the expected butterflies seemed to be present though - did they leave already?
There were a few nice lichens, some of which I could recognise ...
|Acarospora fuscata on a boulder in the main slack|
|Lecanora chlarotera on an "imported" hawthorn|
|Lecidella elaeochroma - same hawthorn|
|Phaeophyscia orbicularis on pillbox bricks|
|Pillbox - Lecidella scabra?|
|low down on Sycamore trunk|
Last but not least a few fungi popped up, but mostly the microfungi type at this time of year
|A pyrenomycete on gorse|
|Phoma (Metasphaera) complanata|
|Tubercularia vulgaris - to be confirmed|
