Fungi Few Birds

I can see myself getting into fungi one day but for now I'm happy to just appreciate them without putting a name to them all. Saw masses today without any searching.

Not a lot on Orcombe this morning but counted 80+ Woodpigeon, 8+ Blackbirds, 3 Jays, 30+ Chaffinches, 24+ Siskins, 13+ Greenfinches, 35+ Meadow Pipits, 11+ Pied Wagtails, 2 Grey Wagtails, 2+ Goldcrests, 5 Chiffchaffs, c20 Linnets, 3 Song Thrushes, 14 Skylarks, 15+ Goldfinches, 8 Starlings and 3 Red-legged Partridges.
The first-winter Yellow-legged Gull was again off Mudbank along with 12+ Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 105+ Pintail, 16+ Great Crested Grebes and a single Red-breasted Merganser.
A stroll around Bystock this afternoon produced 2 Firecrests, 3 Crossbills, 1 Redpoll, 2+ Redwings, at least 1 Jay, Nuthatch and a couple Goldcrests.
