Stonechats, a lizard, buzzards and a big bracket fungus.

Pam and Jackie caught the bus to St Mawes whilst the rest of us walked south along the coastal path, seeing stonechats (Jerry told us that) and a lizard on the way to Porthbeor Beach (closed due to landslip).

This is a stonechat - we saw lots, but this one paused long enough to be photographed.

There we cut across the peninsula to Place and the small boat which operates as a passenger ferry to St Mawes.  On a tree near Place were several big bracket fungi which seemed to issue spores from their top surface.

Maybe three inches thick and a foot across - a big fruiting body.

About 6 buzzards circled and squawked over Drawler Plantation, beside the water as we crossed.  Seemed to be several young ones learning a few flying tips from their parents.  We adjourned to the Victory for Skinner’s Betty Stogs beer and bowls of cheesy chips.  On the way to ice creams and a bus home Pam pointed out a couple of surplus apostrophes.

Last night’s dinner was spaghetti served with a pesto of fresh avocados, basil, garlic and olive oil prepared by Jerry – Steve maintained the standard today with a three mushroom risotto and roast beetroot.
