I squelched my way across pasture at the foot of Fox Hill (spring line?) and made for the shelter of a small area of woodland, intent on sifting through leaf litter in search of linyphiid spiders - money spiders as they are popularly known. The woodland floor was scattered with logs too so I decided to investigate those if time allowed.
Fungi formed neat lines along fallen tree branches.

These sawn logs were being allowed to rot, hopefully attracting beetles and
Oniscus asellus was present in abundance and will assist in the
process of decay. Foxhill Farm, 9 December, 2019
