Dalgety Bay - Dead Wood

Yesterday was a busy day but I managed a quick tour of the woods behind my house before a planned shopping trip. Big "return on investment" there with some expected but not yet sen species ticked and a couple of tree species that I haven't noticed anywhere else. These woods contain some pretty old trees and my understanding is that there used to be a lot more before our houses were built there.

A few seaside additions too, including a new seaweed for me which was identified during a one day conference on recording that I attended on Saturday.

Hoping to get to 400 before I go up north for a few days. You can see from the below chart how fast this year has been so far. CUL is my local SWT reserve and the initial date of 2014 is maintained because of the way the table's set up.
