...and this wonderful clerodendron berry looking like an edible sweet. (It is poisonous)
Why is a clerodendron called the peanut butter tree? Is it the fragrance?

Sussex avoided most of the fog on Monday morning, except for this area to the north of Lewes.
As winds were so light on Sunday this was possibly exascerbated by smoke particles left over from Saturday night.

A male greater spotted woodpecker; more common than the smaller lesser spotted version.
The male has the red 'bruise' on the back of his neck.
There is a 'middle spotted woodpecker' which lives on the continent and does not visit the UK.

An orange grisette; one of the amanita family which contains some very poisonous specimens.
This one is not, but I don't have the inclination to try.

The view from above isn't so helpful when it comes to identification. How the gills attach to
the stem and the stem itself are vital when identifying mushrooms.
