I've been giving one of the hedges at Cwmllwyd (on the N side of Mynydd Du) a mighty thrashing: it was casting ever deeper shade over the vegetable plot and that's about the only piece of productive garden ground we've got here. There was lots of old and dead wood in the hedge and some of this was home to species unknown to me. I'm hoping someone will be able to identify some lichens and fungus for me. Most grateful if you are able to oblige. Thanks - Steve Clarke.
The twig was about the diameter of a blackboard chalk
This stick was about 25mm diameter
About the thickness of a pencil - tiny fruiting bodies!
