6th October 2020: Mousehold Heath which in previous years has yielded some new-to-me species of fungi. Would we find new ones this year?
Every fungus hunter’s delight, recognised by all, even if unable to name it
And its brother…
already featured on this blog: Tawny Grisette. THAT was a new one for me
Nothing new here; it’s quite common. But it is a good specimen
Another common fungus. But again, a good specimen
This next one could be one of several different species, several different families. I’ve yet to get to grips with these bonnets/parachutes/etcs. But I like the elfin size of it
This is another group I’ve yet to identify with certainty, but I’ll take a guess at a Wood-tuft
I have this recorded in my folder as In The Dark Lord’s Garden.
This is classed as a “cup”. And it was a new find. Happy with that
The Dapperling and Amanita families have much in common
What a wonderful name. And so easy to identify. And another new one for me.
I’d like to say it’s a waxcap. But there are several other species it could be.
Love the colour of that one
I’m sure to an expert it would be easy to name. But I’m not that. I do see it often, spilling out from trees.
And finally an easy one…
And that, my friends, is all for today. I’ll have more for you next week. Maybe I’ll even be able to name a few more.
I hope it’s encouraged you to look more carefully at the places you’re passing. In the ordinary, the extraordinary hides.
