Stoney Rake



Got a tip off today at 1400hrs that Redwings from the East are entering the Country in their thousands at Spurn (Nr. Hull) and making their way West... So went to my favourite Thrush Passage station at Stoney Rake... None going through, winds pretty strong.... but thinks they chose a different route or maybe theyve dropped for feeding up......took some of photos etc... Photo 1 is bottom end of Stoney Rake where it meets with Calf Hey Road 2) is Fungi Shaggy Scalycap (Pholiota squarrosa) which is growing on rotten decideous tree which can be seen in the centre photo below. 3) A long shot of Ogden taken from on the top of Stoney Rake. 4) The rotten tree stump which shows the Shaggy Scalycap. 5) is Vermillion Waxcap (Hygrocybe miniata) found in meadow just yards from the rotten tree stump shown here...
