Star Gel

Here we go again, the translucent gel has arrived, still no definitive source.
In the BBC Nature’s Weirdest Events, Series 4, episode 3, (January 14, 2015) Chris Packham showed a specimen of "star jelly" and had it sent to the Natural History Museum, London for a DNA analysis by Dr. David Bass who confirmed it was from a frog. He also found some traces of magpie on the jelly which may point to the demise of the frog.

From the size of our deposits it would be a giant frog.

The white fungus on the Chaffinches legs is still quite prevalent, the attached photo shows an extremely bad case.
