Milkcap

Friday, August 20th 2010

The warm weather and high humidity has been the ideal conditions for fungi and we have seen a huge number appear today.

This milkcap is growing among the thick grass in some of the glades.

Milkcap

This mushroom, called The Blusher, is growing in large numbers amongst the needle litter in the plantation near the wetland.

The Blusher

It is called The Blusher because the white flesh slowly reddens when it gets damaged.

In addition Sulphur Tufts are sending up their yellow-orange clusters and various bracket fungi have appeared along dead tree trunks.
