Ogden Water 31-01-13

Bruce, Steve, Andy and myself visited Ogden Water again after the snow had melted, which revealed the masses of Pithya vulgaris  on the recycled Fir trees at the reservoir edge. There were hundreds of them, all of various sizes ranging from tiny smooth dots, to these mature convoluted ones below.
