Various folk send me photos as they are not sure which fungus it might be --- or is it a fungus at all.
This was sent recently wondering if it might be some sort of 'jelly-fungus' or a 'slime-mould'. I think it might have a common name but I forget ---- star-snot is one suggestion.
This is the regurgitated ovaries of a frog or toad which has been predated by a bird. Birds find this part is unpleasant or are unable to digest so regurgitate.
Perhaps Colin knows more detail. Does this have a 'common' name? What bird(s) do this?
I once found some with remains of frog close-by.
