Fungi in the meadows

Over the past couple of days I have come across some interesting fungi. The best one is probably chicken of the woods or sulphur polypore, above centre. This is a young specimen as they age they become more clustered and tiered. I found this growing in Athey's dene. The fungi on the bottom picture is I believe Ganoderma applanatum; Artists bracket growing along the Mitford road. The top picture is Sulphur tuft an attractive species growing along the Wanny line at Morpeth common.

Thaks Mary, the Borough woods that line the south bank of the river Wansbeck between Morpeth and Mitford are good for fungi but it is at it's best in the autumn.
