Physconia distorta (wet), such a smart #lichen with those tidy lobules overlapping in the centre of the thallus. This specimen in particular showcases the lobate margins of the apothecia, with a coating of white pruina on the discs #lobeseverywhere #LakeDistrict #Cumbria https://t.co/LhFNikapBO CumbriaBDC photo

Exciting stuff as the famous Ernest Blezard habitat bird cases are installed for #Tullie125 #exhibition. Here red kite, southern puffins, kestrel chicks, merlins shown. Recreating the fondly remembered bird room atmosphere of older times. https://t.co/0EPsd4Mj3S
