Wortham Ling

Wortham Ling between Diss and Bressingham is a favourite walk of ours. Named after the masses of Ling Heather that grows there it is managed by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust. 

It is a place that never provides much excitement with it's birds but for flora and fungi it is excellent. On a recent walk there, despite it getting a little late in the season we found some nice fungi still hanging on. Most spectacular was a large floppy mass of Yellow Brain on Gorse but we also found a new one for me in the form of Oak Toothed Crust plus Moss Bell on the mossy grassland, Witches Butter, an Oysterling sp and an attractive Cortinarious sp (probably!)
