Fungal Foray

I recently took my daughter on a local foray with a guide around a nature reserve. There were far fewer mushrooms than other years, but after much searching the group managed a good haul, and we found some that I dont normally see.

The finds are used to monitor species on the site and for education.

Puff balls, various wax caps, and weeping widows were some found here.

Honey fungus, these were left after ID, so that we didn't spread it back home.

Turkey Tail found on dead tree stumps.

I've also been going out locally to find other species, and found some interesting ones in a very nice woodland, which I'll post about when I've sorted the Identification. There were various species, but not in profusion again this year.
