Purple fungi in Ennerdale valley
Yesterday Andy was on a work party in the valley, like last week it was clearing overhanging trees from the road. We parked up near Middle (Pillar) bridge and made our way back West.
The snow had melted a lot compared to last week, Haycock and Steeple.
High Gill had a lot of water in it.
Dave and John discussing something.
Colin beavering away, hope that's not a Birch tree as Margaret wouldn't be happy.
Chris getting great use out of last years Xmas present.
Pillar with almost no snow.
Andy spotted this purple fungi, no one in the group had ever seen fungi this colour before.
One more work party next week and that's it for 2011.
