Out looking at birds

 On our recent visit to the local Wildlife Trust Reserve at Wolesley, I spotted these Honey Fungus fruiting bodies on a dead log. They had almost carpeted the top of the log. There seems to be a lot of fungi about this year.
 Just a short way away were these Shaggy Pholiata.  They are often found around the bases of trees.
 Nearby was some kind of Dung Fungus.  I do not know which one this is, but it appears at a site where Geese and Ducks roost a lot.
 Spotted a Wren hunting for insects in a nearby bush.
Then along came a Greenfinch.  These birds are much less common than they used to be.
On the way home we stopped at the Canalside farm shop and saw some Shaggy Ink Caps in the car park.  They are edible, but also on a café car park.
