Today’s fungus walk

A fantastic turnout today for my fungus walk at Stoke Park. Thank you to all of my 55 guests! The sun was shining too, fantastic to see lots of children asking lots of questions and even finding and identifying fungus for me. We wondered the woods and found several species, including the beefsteak fungus (pictured) which is edible and we all had a taste too! Some other interesting species we also found were the Earth Star fungus, yellow stags horn, the ultimate tree-killing oak bracket fungus, and the tiny pin-head mushroom; so-called because they look like and are the size of pins. Lots more pictures to follow. Bat walk next, only a couple of places left and that will be the last Bat walk this year before they go to sleep for the winter.
