I'd walked within a few feet of this 5 years ago while climbing the Donalds on either side of the road, but didn't noticed it - I hadn't heard of FBMs then.

It seemed rude not to call here when I was walking the B709 collecting and bagging the neighbourhood NPFBs. In the middle of the Moorfoot Hills in the valley between the Garvald Punks and the Deaf Heights. FBM photographed 10/10/2006, GRP.
