Dump it. You can't be sure what the fermenting agent is, and it might be something unpleasant.

Yesterday we went to a very local piece of woodland. A very pleasant walk, and a few nice finds, but remarkably few small birds, something we have noticed at one or two other sites. We did hear Green ...

MR, I think the egrets you see are probably mostly Little Egrets (Egretta garzetta). We get quite a few of those as well. They are smaller than Great White Egrets, which are Grey Heron sized. Little E ...

Out to an area of flooded gravel pits with a few bits and pieces of other habitats (woodland, meadow, hedgerows) in the mix.

Quite a few wetland birds including a Green Sandpiper which is apparentl ...

My nice yellow Waxcap was either Hygrocybe conica or Hygrocybe acutoconica but Mr Myco did not want to pick it to find out which one. He does not say exactly why he didn't want to pick it - he's usual ...

I hope you're feeling better!
