This afternoon following a damp morning I ventured out and took the footpath on the west bank of the River Arun by the golf course and across farmland. There was plenty of blackthorn and bullace, but little ash, but I will check for Brown Hairstreaks here on a sunny day. I walked back over the Arun by the footbridge by the Arun View, our favourite pub.
I noticed this magnificent specimen of the edible fungus 'Chicken of the woods'
|Chicken of the woods, Laetiporus sulphureus|
This small moth (20mm across) was on the wall of our flat
