Tuesday Treat: Fungi from Ringland

Ringland Hills, 6 or so miles outside Norwich, is a wooded delight that overlooks the River Wensum. At this time of year, it’s an essential visit. I’d love to be able to name all these fungi but the one thing I’ve learned about fungi since photographing them is they’re devilishly difficult to identify with certainty.

A coral fungus: 28th Oct 2020

It’s the first of these I’ve ever found. And a good-sized one, too

    Love the pics and your interest in fungi. Seems you have many varieties in the region! The bananas line made me laugh. Have a good rest of the day.

    • It’s been a good season so far. Lots of new ones for me. And so many resemble kitchen rejects!
      As to the rest of today, I’m hoping to get out for a short walk. I have a 10-miler scheduled for tomorrow.

    What an interesting collection of fungi you’ve found for us. That coral mushroom is amazing! And I do always forget that mushrooms can be concave and collect rainwater. I must remember to put that detail in a story someday.
