Beechwoods Fungi

Friday 18th August 2017.  ‘Early morning walk in the Beechwoods.  Bright and sunny, but cool; the wind made the sound of surf in the treetops.  Greeted by the laughing call of a green woodpecker – the signature sound of the woods?  Parts of the woods where the trees are close together and there is a significant under storey were dark and slightly forbidding.  The open woods retained the welcoming palette of light and shade; and large toadstools with rough biscuit coloured caps pushed through the mast and leaf litter.  I couldn’t identify them’.  Saturday 26th August 2017.  ‘The fungi noted on the 18th were giving off an unpleasant, fishy smell.’
