As soon as I wrote my last blog bemoaning the lack of fungi at the woods, we have had a lot of rain and the fungi are starting to emerge in some numbers.
Last weekend, I found a wonderful stump covered with tiny little fungi. It looked like a tiny fairy city. Other logs were showing the sulphur-tuft fungi usually seen during October. And there are a few clouded agaric in the woods, as well as some massive jelly-ear fungi on rotting elder stems.
It seems I spoke too soon. The fungi are fruiting at last!
