I love the holes created at the base of trees, I always find myself wondering what creatures might use them for shelter.A home for fairies maybe? (-:There wasn't much birdlife apparent, but I was entertained by this Treecreeper for a while as it flitted from tree to tree and gradually got closer to me. In the end it was investigating a birch trunk right above my head so this shot below was made with a cricked neck and my favourite baseball cap abandoned on the floor!I was desperately trying to get a photograph with it's head in, but it was not to be. Most of the time it had it's head stuck down a crevice in the bark.
This is the only shot I got of the whole bird and I nearly didn't post it as it's not the best shot in the world! (-: It does show that lovely fine decurved bill though.The only other fungus I found on this walk was this one called King Alfred's Cakes. Click on the brown link to find out more about the 'Great' King Alfred.Here's a close up of this inedible fungus.A mossy macro........I don't know what this plant is, but I loved the lovely rounded leaves lined with frost.Well, that's the end of my woodland walk. Thanks Evie for giving me the inspiration to get out there and start clicking!
Thanks also to all of you who are kind enough to have looked at and commented on my blog this last year. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
