A couple of grey squirrels were once again screaming at each other regarding territorial boundaries but a pair of blackcaps were working through bushes together, searching for insects and berries perhaps to feed a brood.
I stepped out on to a broad grassy area and my eye was immediately caught by a white object the size and shape of a cricket ball. It was a specimen of Agaricus arvensis. It is related to the Field Mushroom, Agaricus campestris, but is considerably larger.
