The random farm machinery are rollers and what looks like a harrow. These are used to prepare the ground for planting.

Lovely photos . . . make me homesick.

lhs – Cambridge rolls – which tamp down newly sown seeds
rhs – Tyne (sp?) rake – to break up the top layer of soil

I was also trying to identify the blue/black berries found in hedgerows in the south of France alongside old railway tracks.

I picked a few berries on Harmondsworth Moor, and tried to identify them. I think you have solved my problem – sloe berries.

The only big ones in my mushroom book are parasols. I can’t get an idea of the size from your photo though.
I saw one the size of a dinner plate last year near where I live – peak district. Honestly, it was about 30cm in diameter.
If it is a parasol mushroom, you can apparently eat is and it’s very tasty. Don’t take my word for it though, please!

Great pictures! I’m putting together a presentation on my acorn research, may I please use your acorn photo? I think your mushroom is an Old Man of the Woods (Strobilomyces floccopus).
Thank you.
