Field Meeting

Leader: Andy Swan (HNHS Member)
Andy produced a list of 57 identified species of largely quite ordinary fungi at this renowned site.
However, there was several attractive and uncommon ones including:  a clump of bright orange Pholiota adiposa (uncommon) on a huge fallen beech tree; several black and white Magpie Inkcap; and a patch of the minute white Fluted Bird’s Nest (Cyathus striatus) which has spores in packages held in the cup-shaped structure, somewhat resembling eggs in a nest.
Death Cap, Horn-of-Plenty, Pink Waxcap and Moss Oysterling were also found. Click here for species list.
