Michael and I had a walk up the valley and these were a few of the things we found!

Acorns with a species of gall. 

A pretty frame of fungi around an Autumn Crocus.

Autumn Crocus (Crocus nudiflorus). 

Michael’s photos above and mine of the Shield Bug below.

I think this may be a Red-Cross Shield Bug (Elasmostethus cruciatus) which I found at home later.
