Lynchcombe in November
The exciting news from November was the first snow of winter. Not a lot of snow for the Mendip Hills but its still very early in the season so we should get lots more.
This is also a great time of year for sunrises. The clear winter air and the later starts in the morning make them perfect.
The Mendip Hills gets the snow but the Somerset Levels below get the morning mists.
One of the best features of Lynchcombe are its wide open views across the Somerset Levels.
The soft winter light and mist are wonderful, and take on a mystic quality around the Glastonbury Tor.
In the combe sheep are grazing.
I have also been on the look out for mushrooms. I know virtually nothing about them and hope to get some help identifying them.
Recent scrub clearance has provided lots of opportunities for mushrooms across the reserve.
I liked these little black ones growing through the fresh moss that covers the area cleared by a group of conservation volunteers last year.
