Dersingham Bog

This is the last of my posts from our trip to Norfolk, on the homeward leg of our journey where we stopped at Dersingham Bog National Nature Reserve. An interesting landscape of mire, heathland and deciduous and coniferous woodland. The reserve was mentioned in Field Guide to the Dragonflies and Damselflies of Great Britain as a good spot for dragonlflies and we did see Common Darters and Southern Hawkers but what caught my attention the most were the numbers of orange topped cap and stem fungi.

A great end to a really fantastic trip, made all the more enjoyable by the availability of online information provided by the websites of  Norfolk Wildlife Trust and Leicestershire and Rutland's Wildlife Trust and the wonders of satnav.
