After visiting parents on Sunday Belinda and I headed off to Foxley Wood for a walk and to see what fungi we could find. This is something that Belinda particularly enjoys and I think it was my first visit to the site in the autumn.
It was a very good choice because we found loads of stuff and the variety was superb. The most spectacular find was the beautiful and delicate Crested Coral but we also winkled out Lilac Webcap, Aniseed Funnel, Jellybaby, Sinuous Chanterelle, Twig Parachute, Brown Birch Bolete, Fenugreek Stalkball, Cramp Balls, Warted Amanita, Glistening Inkcap, Blackening Waxcap, Stagshorn, Amethyst Deceiver, Fly Agaric, Trooping Funnel and a host of others which I'm still trying to id. That always seems to be the case with fungi - they aren't easy!
