Still some flowers in bloom but blossoms are becoming much more scarce now.
And some fungi - all nibbled to some extent - which I'm not even going to attempt to ID except the last one looks like a puffball (about 5-6 ins / 15cm across). The first two in mixed deciduous woodland (oak, beech, sweet chestnut mainly), the bottom two out in the open on grass field. Needless to say I left them well alone.

Also noticing more familiar V-shaped flocks departing yesterday whilst the skies were clearer (that is to say, they were visible not that they were waiting for the conditions to improve lol).

It wasn't starling but hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of crows. I've seen large groups of crows and magpies before at around this time of year but this time the number of crows was mind boggling.
