Tyrrel's Wood, 5 November 2021

Our lovely local ancient wood was full of fungal fruiting bodies on Friday. Belinda and I had partaken of a very nice lunch at Goodies and needed to walk it off afterwards!

Find of the walk was without doubt a nice Elfin Saddle found while inspecting an Amethyst Deceiver near the northern edge of the wood. Other nice finds included Purple Brittlegill, Sepia Bolete (probably!), False Deathcap, Pale Oyster, Common Bonnet, Sulphur Tuft, Spectacular Rustgill, Clustered Brittlestem, Pestle Puffball and an atypical amanita sp with a rather scaly cap.

Birdwise - as ever we recorded Nuthatch and Redwings but little else
