I Thought he Was a Fun-gi…

100% unapologetic about the title. A beautiful rendition of a classic four-year-old’s joke… Masterful. What do you mean “no”?… I was proud of that one!

London Wildlife Challenge day: We all lost count weeks ago, Tooby…

I spotted these lads on my daily commute to Turnham Green tube station. I believe them to be ‘Honey Fungus’ Armillaria mellea… Although they’re rather beautiful, these guys are a real pest, attacking the roots of woody plants, often leading to the death of the innocent host plant (such as the tree pictured here)… Bloody nightmare if you ask me…

‘Seal’ it With a Kiss…

Happy #NationalSealDay – time to celebrate all things about British seals. Did you know that the UK enjoys 40% of the world’s population of grey seals? How bloody cute are these blubbery babas!!! Sadly, seals are considered an issue for aquaculture businesses, particularly in Scotland. Although the government denies a ‘seal cull’, they have licensed the shooting of over 1300 seals!!!….. All smells a bit fishy to me… 😦 Time to further protect  these beautiful animals, me thinks. sealday
