Sunday Picture Post: Woodland, Heathland, Swamp and Marsh

Monday. 19th October. Early bus out of Great Yarmouth and a walk along a Sandy Lane…

… keeping eyes ever keen for fungi…

… and into Fritton Wood, a pine plantation liberally mixed with native trees…

White-barked birch: 19 Oct 2020

Couldn’t resist this little vignette, so Christmassy

The heath supports a wide range of fungi, not all of them healthy to eat…

The Sickener: 19 Oct 2020

The Deceiver: 19 Oct 2020

From woodland to heath… to swamp…

Fritton Marsh: 19 Oct 2020

Between woodland and marsh, there grew a rose…

I’ve become obsessed with finding a purple fungus. This one is close, but it’s more of a Victorian Mourning Mauve

Wide swathes of the plantation have been cleared with plans to quarry aggregates. I think that idea has not been abandoned. Too many rare species have their habitat here.

And the prize, the fungus-hunter’s treasure…

Fly Agaric: 19 Oct 2020

aka Amanita muscaria:19 Oct 2020

It was a fantastic day. These are a small selection of the fungi we found. Perhaps I’ll show you some of the other photos another time. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

  4. I was thrilled when I saw my first fly agaric, they really are a prize among fungi, but you have some great specimens here!
