I love to find Tremella mesentrica in the pallor of January. Enter the name in the blog search box, top right, to find other images and you’ll see the yellow for which yellow brain fungus is named.
Once again, otters are being seen in the River Kent. An otter with three kits, it is said. Last week my friend Monica and I walked the river in search of otter, and I several days since, but the weather has been January dismal and the light poor until yesterday when I preferred to be out of town. In Cumbrian Contrasts, I write about the splendid otter sightings I had in winter 2012. Once again, the otters draw us in. Stand looking through binoculars into the river and you can bet someone will come up and engage you in nature talk.
