The Northern Forest (2), Epping Forest, Essex.
Giant Horsetail (Equisetum telmateia) growing along the banks of the Tippa Burn. It likes damp shady areas so there is quite a lot of it here.
Looking down from the high ground near Copley Plain into the Tippa Burn valley. Note the pollarded Beeches of varying sizes.
Many-zoned Polypore fungi (Trametes versicolor) on a fallen Beech.
This is a very common fungus but is not edible.
