Fungi of Borough woods

Amethyst Deceiver (Laccaria amethystina)

Wood Woollyfoot (Collybia peronata)

Clustered Toughshank (Collybia confluens)

Stinkhorn (Phallus impudicus)

Glistening Inkcap (Coprinellus micaceus)

Stump Puffball (Lycoperdon pyriforme)

Blueing Bracket (Postia subcaesia)

Sorry Kingsdowner but Autumn is well under way up here. September has started very cool and cloudy but a walk through the Borough woods between Morpeth and Mitford along the banks of the river Wansbeck is very productive for fungi at the moment. Above is a small selection of fungi typical of Beech and Oak woodland.
