While chopping firewood for winter Barrie found this puffball amongst the leaf litter, it was about 3 inches across and full of jelly. It was remarkably heavy and attached to the soil by thin white roots. We also noticed an old nest under the bark of a tree at around head height and wondered if it was an old Tree Creeper nest. This morning I found a Mayfly sunning itself on the car or perhaps it had mistook the shiny surface for a pond. We have been watching a Hornet flying around in the garden, it sounds like an mini old- fashioned fighter plane as it buzzes around. We found the start of what looks like a wasps nest in the shed - they nested here last year - or maybe its the hornet.
