Some of us cut down the encroaching scrub and small trees at the edge of the fen. Judy, who represents Natural England, showed us many species of fungi that she picked up in and around the fen. Their colours are truly astonishing. From purest white through every shade of yellow and brown to bubblegum pink. I particularly like the purple deceiver.
It was a lovely morning, the sun burnt through the mist, and insects buzzed and a curious Robin checked out our work, no doubt looking for the green caterpillar that decided to hide in our tool bag.-Ursula
