Productive stump

Velvet shank and Silverleaf fungus side by side.

A hard winter seems to produce large amounts of Velvet shank fungi but this year most that I have seen have been growing high up. Along Abbey meadows I came across a tree stump covered in several species of fungi including Silverleaf fungus, Turkeytail and dozens of Velvet shank all low down. At the same spot here yesteday a Tawny owl was flying aound the tree tops here at 6am.

I like the pics of the Velvet Shank fungi, that's a pretty hefty cluster of fruitbodies. There does seem to be an abundance of it this year. L

Thanks for visiting my blog K. I have seen a lot of velvet shanks today in Carlisle park in the town centre.
