'Prince, Tom Waits and a prisoner ant pop up in a fascinating book about how fungi form our world.' writes reviewer Tom Kerridge.
It so happens that Abby's wonderful bird photos are shortly to be replaced with fungi - just to remind us that this is the time to look down rather than up for nature's wonders, like this bracket fungus on a tree on the Ackling Dyke near the Vitrell Gate. If you have a photo of fungi you'd like to share, do send them to firstname.lastname@example.org and go to our Reading List page for other ideas for the fireside.
The new page banner pic is of course Abby Eaton's of the Hobby - seems appropriate for what's supposed to be fast news!
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
