Access: The Meadow Trail is fully functional gain, but it might get muddy if we get an April shower. As a result of the recent work carried out by contractors for Anglian Water, the path is wider than it used to be. The loss of "edge" on one stretch makes it likely that people will fall into the Hayling Carr, so we will put up a bit more fence there.
Fungi: You might expect to find edible fungi in the autumn; that's what I thought anyway, so I was surprised to find an extraordianry looking mushroom growing by the Ouse Valley Way this week. It was a morel; very much sought after by the Hugh Fearnley-Whittinstalls of this world and worth perhaps £30 a pound. That's why I'm not telling you exactly where I found it. I left it there to reproduce and for others to enjoy.
