Can anyone identify this growth/nest in my sons garden on Bodmin Moor? It is bigger than a football!




At first glance it looks like a giant fertilizer spill, probably of some timed release brand. Any data on how big those "beads" are, or whether they are hard or soft?

They aren't eggs of some sort are they? From some sort of animal? But they do look like fertiliser balls too!

Poke it with a stick. If you see a cloud of spores come from it then it is some type of fungus. Also could be a large dropping of scat from an animal that has been feeding heavily on berries

Looks like fertiliser spill to me, too. I don't see what else it could be.

How do I say thanks?
