We went for a short walk down the valley along the Forbach. We saw a kingfisher and a white-throated dipper as well as some rather large fish. We also saw quite a lot of the water plant(s?) shown in the photo which we'll try to identify.
Update: we have now identified this as one of the Callitriche genus. You need to look at the seeds to discover which species it is and even then they are difficult to separate, so I have just taken the genus name Callitriche.
Later, while clearing up the garden, we came across some Candle Snuff Fungus, Xylaria hypoxylon.
Again, we had thick fog all day and it was noticeably colder. As if to confirm that colder weather is coming, we saw our first brambling of this winter in the hawthorn bushes.
The fog is caused by a temperature inversion which also makes sound travel from long distances away. When we walked up to town in the evening, we heard church bells chiming the quarter from the North (towards Baiersbronn), but the nearest church in that direction is a good few miles away.
