Raucous Jays!

Two Jays were chasing each other around Montpelier Park this morning calling loudly. Not sure if it was a courting pair or not.....also Great and Blue Tits, Blackbird and Robin and a 'pinking' Chaffinch of note.

Fun guy

I couldn't help noticing an interesting fungus this morning in Station Road. I think it is one of the Crust Fungi, possibly Hairy Curtain Crust Stereum hirsutum.
