Surrey365; Day 42. How did I not notice these before??
I like to think I’m fairly observant when I’m out and about in nature. So how on earth had I never noticed an Oak Apple until a few days ago, when now they are everywhere I look?? I’ve noticed Marble galls before, and read about galls, but these are so large and colourful, I just can’t believe I’ve missed them. I think this must be an especially prolific year for Oak Apples, because today when I walked at Frensham (with the intention of looking for galls to photograph), the trees are covered in them! This particular tree looked like an apple tree at harvest time.
