Today a grey squirrel helped me solve a mystery. For the last week I’ve been smelling something really sweet in the woods which I was convinced was a fungi but wasn’t able to trace it.

As I watched the squirrel in the branches of an old beech, it was feeding on something white and then discarding most of it before grabbing another bit.

I went to the base of the tree and saw it had been feeding on porcelain fungi, Oudemansiella mucida. It has a really slimy cap but the squirrel had been scraping off the gills and discarding the slimy bit. I sniffed the remains and sure enough, that’s what I’ve been smelling all week!

When life throws sh*t your way, let the dung beetles clear it up. They love it!

Thinking ahead to the winter and what surprises the woodland might give me, got me reminiscing over the time I spent with the nomadic Tsataan reindeer herders in the high North of the Mongolian Taiga. 
Experts in self sufficiency, they don’t eat the reindeer but they do use their milk, and will ride them and forage for their food and medicinals off the land.

Got my Port Eliot festival head on. Who knew a smiling sloth on my G&T cup could be my muse!

Still time to come along this weekend and be an Inspector Pooseau, Hercule Poorot or a Shitlock Holmes and discover the wildlife that lives in this incredible location by the tracks and signs we find!

Love, love, love Port Eliot festival.

Island of Mull.

An incredible adventure walking through the night from dusk til dawn over magical, ancient, wild Dartmoor. 
No torches, walking in darkness guided by the light of the moon and @dartmoorsdaughter and accompanied by the calls of curlews and nightjars until they gave way to the dawn chorus.

I am crushing on this fox big time. Love it’s little visits. 
I took my boots off and walked with it barefoot through the woods until my phone went off and destroyed the moment.

For over 400 years the beaver has been absent in the UK...until recently.
@woodlandvalleyfarmevents has helped bring them back to Cornwall and they’re breeding! 
Last night I was lucky enough to see both adults and one of the kits. Amazing!

The view from a secret woodland spot, across my neighbours fields, sure are priddy on a Cornish summers day.
Happy Solstice!

Looking back to when I had the time to carve things. Must try harder!
