How low can I go?

Today I have been carrying out a lower plants survey of Graffham Common with Bruce Middleton, Jacqui Middleton and Howard Matcham. We saw lots of good stuff including Violet Crystalwort Riccia huebeneriana, a liverwort and only the second county record. There was LOTS of it around the edge of the pond.
Fungi are everywhere on the site, the commonest being a sticky bolete which is Bovine Bolete Suillus bovinus. Tawny Grisette is also very abundant. I saw a few fungi I had not seen before including False Chanterelle Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca. All in all, I have added 17 species to my all-taxa list today! Oh, I totally forgot there is a family of Hobbies in the area and we saw at least four mid air food passes from adults to young today. Also, singing Firecrest nearby.
