Route Planning

Thursday, October 18th 2012

Waterproofs and wellies were needed even though the heavy rain had stopped, as Brian, John and Elizabeth set out to plan the route for the fungus foray on Saturday. 

The route was alongside a flooded Risedale Beck.

And into the area cleared by volunteers earlier in the year, where a hint of autumn colour could be seen.

Continuing along the path the sun's rays streamed through the conifer trees.

There has not been the usual amount of fungi through the autumn so far.  The fruiting bodies have either been good food for slugs and snails or have died back very quickly.  However the walk revealed many fungi of different types and much of it was in pristine condition.  The rain added to their beauty by filling the cup shaped ones with water.

These strange looking 'grass' shoots are actually fungi!  We think they are Slender Club (Macrotyphula juncea).
