01/12/2021-Redwing, Mushrooms and more at Lakeside and home: A key winter moment聽
I took the first two pictures in this photoset of one of the young trees out the back in splendid colour with the red and green leaves and a lovely Pied Wagtail I got a cracking view of out the back just before my lunch time walk. It was a mostly sunny morning after a shower cleared, and there was another before my walk and some rain during it as I explored the eastern meadows at Lakeside. I took the third and fourth pictures in this photoset looking over the bowl area and into the distance with a bit of sun reappearing to light up the landscape on the horizon.聽
I was then thrilled to see something I had been hoping to see for a while when I saw a thrush fly into a tree, and I was delighted to see in the binoculars it was a Redwing with its scarlet strip and bright and prominent eye stripe. This is a bird that is indicative of winter and the weeks/months either side of it for me and I have been used to seeing them at Lakeside in the season for so long but especially became used to them last winter coming here every day on my working from home lunch time walks and I saw them so much. So I was really anticipating the arrival of Redwings back at Lakeside or maybe a Fieldfare its relative as I saw first of the two at Lakeside last autumn. I think for these thrushes its become two points in an autumn/winter for me which may be combined in some years seeing my first of the season which we did last month at Cadman鈥檚 Pool in the New Forest for Redwing a great moment I have seen them since and seeing my first at Lakeside in a year. It can take longer for that and there is such an intimacy about that because they are a very beautiful bird and an exciting thrush and its so good to have them on the doorstep.聽
As I walked on I took the fifth picture in this photoset of a nice sky formation. I then returned to where I went yesterday in the southern fenced off area under trees to see the two lovely mushrooms again and get a chance to photograph the one I didn鈥檛 yesterday and again for the one I did both of them I liked having my macro lens which is the lens I would always prefer with mushrooms which I didn鈥檛 have yesterday. I took the sixth picture in this photoset of the beautiful purple brittlegills one there were a few of them and I photographed a couple which I didn鈥檛 take a picture of yesterday. I then got the seventh picture in this photoset of the shaggy scalycaps again a star of yesterday round a tree as some nice light came in with the sun coming through a bit. It was nice to see the gentleman I quite often see here and talk to as well.聽
I took the eighth picture in this photoset of a nice fallen leaf on the way out and ninth of another smashing sky scene this week with the sun rays coming down. Reminiscent of a favourite sky picture I took of mine at Whitefield Moor in the New Forest in late 2019 which as I said in a post shared from Instagram earlier is on one of the calendars out of my photos for this month. I took the tenth picture in this photoset of a smashing orange sky scene from my window towards the sunset in a memorable sunset as I worked with clouds going nicely red too.聽
Wildlife Sightings Summary: Redwing, Blackbird and Robin well again I鈥檓 on a good run for them both as I am for Blue Tits which I saw also, Feral Pigeon, Collared Dove, Woodpigeon at Lakeside and home, Starling, House Sparrow, Goldfinch, Pied Wagtail and Jackdaw well at home.
I am making today鈥檚 walk, sightings and photos especially the Redwing a standout moment of my December. What this is about is my Wildlife/Photography highlights posts of 2021 have begun posting. For a long time with these annual posts I do I have wanted them all to be in my queue ready to post on the nights I want them to before they all start in recent years the start of December (They did begin in November with two days to help fit them all in by Christmas which they always post by as I do end of year tweets with my photos from Boxing Day). With how I prepare and post them I find it a bit complicated and time consuming making amendments to the posts when they鈥檙e in my queue. So this year and last year I made a firm decision to have nothing from December at all being in or being considered for my highlights blogs and it just means I can spent time in December looking back over the posts and making sure they鈥檝e posted okay and all of that rather than continuing to write them so I鈥檓 only spending time on one of the two as such. To make up for that last year for a few key moments of my wildlife/photography that happened in December which were significant to the whole year or just were amazing moments I mentioned it was a key moment and signposted when a highlights post that the moment may have been in had it happened a different time of year posted or when it will post. I did a bit of this in previous years too.
So this year I will aim to have five of these standout moments if needed and in the title of the blog I will put a key moment in my year or a key moment in my winter or simply a key moment this month and mention the posts at the bottom. I have gone for five first of all but if I feel I need more I can increase to ten. This may become two-pronged as of course I changed the format of my highlights posts half way through the year so for birds for example I had old style ones about birds and a new style one. So whilst if it had happened (just a day earlier in fact as I was a little lenient with adding to the new style posts anything that needed to be between the weekend when I got them all in my queue and December beginning the new style posts are all from the period between August when I changed the format to the end of November) before now I would have mentioned seeing the Redwing in my new style highlights post about key bird moments from August-November this year which posts on the evening of 16th December. Redwing got quite a few mentions in a few of my highlights posts this year some of which have posted so far this week and quite fittingly specifically the highlights post that went out tonight which is on my birds seen on patch and at home part 1 of 2 for a period before I changed the format:聽https://dansnaturepictures.tumblr.com/post/669393662105501696/another-old-style-wildlifephotography-highlights聽which mentioned Redwings last winter as I saw so many coming into the year a lot. So there was something full circle about the day I saw the first Redwing of my season at Lakeside this season being the day that one posted. I think a few of the key moments might be on things I could see again and I could conceivably see Redwings at Lakeside again before the end of December so I may mention this again and group some together and refer to what I said in this post about it being a standout moment. I shall try not to just have every blog called a standout moment.聽

Ochre brittlegill (Russula ochroleuca)
Many fungi in the Russula genus are toxic and look very much like the edible species, which possibly wisely discourages some people from gathering any. The ochre brittlegill is one of the safest in this genus to gather, however, being easily distinguishable from the confusing red russulas, infamously difficult to tell apart. The only fungi one might confuse this for is the yellow swamp brittlegill (Russula claroflava), which is very similar except for its slightly more widely space gills, and its preference for boggy, aspen-filled land, as opposed to the drier deciduous woodland preferred by the ochre brittlegill.聽

Russula sp.
A Russula, showing why fungi in this genus are commonly known as the聽鈥榖rittlegills鈥. Their gills easily break and flake off when you run a finger across them, with a few exceptions, including the charcoal burner (Russula cyanoxantha), which has the more usual flexible and pliant gills.

Russula virescens is commonly known as the green-cracking russula, the quilted green russula, or the green brittlegill. It can be recognized by its distinctive pale green cap that measures up to 15 cm (6 in) in diameter, the surface of which is covered with darker green angular patches. Considered to be one of the best edible mushrooms of the genus Russula, it is described variously as mild, nutty, fruity, or sweet.

For many non-dryads, there is the idea that the whole species is female, since they often refer to themselves and others of their kind in the feminine. While it is true that many use words like she, her, sister and mother, it is because a majority of dryads identify themselves as female. Dryads are a monoecious species, which translates to "hermaphrodite" for meat-based species, as they possess both male and female reproductive organs. Their culture tends to have the majority of dryads identify as female, but individuals may choose to be seen as male, or as gender neutral. With them commonly identifying as female, most dryads are lesbians. Dryads are also open to interspecies relationships and, in these cases, are open to dating any gender. This means that pansexuality is also common in this species. Though these two identities are frequent for dryads, they are not the only ones. Dryads are very open about gender and sex, and they are accepting of any and all who join their families. Much as dryadkind has all sorts of variations and unique groups, so is their belief of love and family. ---------------- June month isn't only about kaiju, but it is also pride month! I have always wanted to do something to celebrate it, but could never think of anything fitting. Finally I came up with the idea of doing dryads based on plants that kind of have the colors of the flags! I figured it would be fitting, since my dryads are already established in having an open view on gender and sex. Thanks to my friend james-silvercat for both helping me figure out all the flags and find fitting plants for each! I do apologize if some of the dryads don't fit perfectly with their corresponding flag, I am not the best with coloring and a lot of color palettes were challenging! For those who are curious, here is the list of flags and what plants I choose to use for them (left to right): Pride - Rainbow Eucalyptus Trans - Echeveria succulents Queer - Blue Turkerytail Asexual - White batflower Lesbian - Autumn purple ash Bisexual - Purple Brittlegill Intersex - Shock O Lat sunflower Agender - Syngonium Aromantic - Caladium black spider Pansexual - Banana tree (yellow, blue java and pink) Non-binary - Passion Flower Genderfluid - Fomitopsis Polyamory - Raspeberries (Red, Black and Blue) Genderqueer - Graptoveria succulents I put in a lot of work to make this and I am super proud of it. I hope others enjoy it as well, and I ask we keep things positive here. This is a celebration, not a debate.
