Fungi foray a roaring success.


This years fungi foray went down well with 30 people coming to hear the immense knowledge of Patrick our fungi expert. Patrick started with a talk about fungi collecting then we walked down toward the beach at Heddon and did a loop back up with everyone eagerly collecting fungi.

Patrick stopped along the way to examine people’s finds and tell the eagerly waiting crowd which ones would kill you in a gruesome way or which tasted quite nice!

We found a couple dozen varieties including Turkey Tails, Earth Balls, Porcelain mushrooms and Dryads Saddle. Along with the largest living organism on earth, the Honey fungus.

Many thanks to Patrick for his thoroughly enjoyable talks along the way, and to everyone for such a good turnout.
