The intriguingly named Earpick Fungus is our #RecordfOfTheWeek. The common name derives from the translation of the latin name, and probably relates to the shape of the fungus. #fungi #dumfriesandgalloway

Always amazing to get some close in cetacean action. This was at Corswall Point, D&G. Juvenile Bottle-nosed Dolphin with adults. Part of a pod of 20+. 😃

Was #DumfriesAndGalloway the last stronghold of the Lynx in Britain? Fascinating article by Lee Raye in @ConversationUK discussing an 18th century account of large wild cats near Kirkcudbright...
