Tawharanui Fungi

I spent the day yesterday at Tawharanui checking up on robins. There have been stoat sightings in the park of late and stoats eat robins (and any other birds they can get hold of). Beacause we know pretty accurately what robins are in the park they give a good indication of predation if we suddenly see a lot of them go missing. Although it was a glorious day I spent most of my time in deep gullies where the sun didn’t penetrate. Like walking into a chilly bin but with lots of fungi and lichens, hence the photos.

    What an interesting variety of fungi. I especially like your last photograph – it invites a story of some sort. The Cape Robins feasted on bees in our garden yesterday afternoon when an apiarist came to remove the bees from our roof. I was too busy holding the ladder for him to take photographs. This morning the Fork-tailed Drongos feasted on bees too.
