Yesterday I visited Raw Nook Nr. The site was fairly quiet with Robins in full song inspired by the mild weather. Talking of the mild weather speaking to a dog walker he told me that during the last couple of early evenings he had seen a Bat flying around on the reserve. The bat is probably a Pipistrelle which has temporally woken up from hibernation.
What was nice to see was the lovely Scarlet Elf Cup mushrooms which are now showing really well. They can be seen from the main path. I counted at least thirty on show.
Did you know that in European folklore, it was said that wood elves drank morning dew from the Scarlet cups. Now who am I to say there are no wood elves down in Raw Nook Nr….hang on what that in the photo….
