I always find it interesting that one end of a log will be covered in fungi while the other end... not so much. Interesting stuff!

I have no idea what this tree was Shirley. But it could well have been a silver birch as we do have quite a few in the wooded areas around where I live.

Thanks Thor. We have a lot of different types of fungi where I live. Along with rare plants etc. I am very lucky to live where I do. My only bug bear is that I have a longish way to go to the nearest river. Though we do have 3 small ponds they do not have an awful lot around other than the usual mallards etc. Mind you I like to see them too!!!!!

Peter, we are so lucky with our fungi around here. Sometimes when I go out to take photos I only look for fungi if I know there is lots around.
