Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

Had a couple of smiles :) Adam's "Why visibility so good" and your use of water purifying tablets. Maybe it is because all my hill walking years were spent in central to highland Scotland. Always drank from the burns (streams) had one small bottle which was filled up en route. Visibility, lol, lost ...

Re: Two for ID please

Thanks Mel, appreciated. I must say I was flummocked by second, particularly as there were a number of patches like this, could only get near enough to get a couple of photos as the rest were dotted up very steep wet slippery slope which runs down from the line of beech trees. I will presume that th...

Re: Two for ID please

Ok I think the first one is Red Cracked Boletus - Boletus chrysenteron am I right?

Still stumped with second though.

Just wondered if this post had been missed?

Re: A walk to the caves of Brent Scar & Attermire Scar

I am definitely not an expert, but recently I had very similar, if not almost identical orchid ID'd as Fragrant Orchid - google it and I think you will find it looks pretty much the same. This is the one I got ID on

Re: Perfect Morning - (Revisited!)

I do like the way you describe your walks and the photos are lovely. Pity there is not a 'like' button, so I could just give you the thumbs up that I have read this. Fungi coming up in abundance here, just wish it would stop raining so I could get out and take more photos.

Two for ID please

the first growing under beech, no particular smell, when cut colour which is pale yellow (camera does not pick this up) remains the same and shows no bruising, the spores are very pale buff The second I thought was slime mould, but obviously is not, it seems quite bubbly with in places what looks li...

Aleuria ID

Is this Aleuria aurantia? it has only just started to appear running along side a large circle of Clustered Tough shank (Gymnopus confluens) among wet beech debris on peat/rocky ground. I know you say take spore prints but not sure how to with these, no particular smell. Should I wait till they get ...

Re: Is this a crust or bracket type fungi

Thanks Chris. They do look a bit like the photo. There were lots of patches of these around the forest floor but I could see no sign of the original tree trunk - no raised ground or even dips where the original tree would have fallen. The domed raised centres within the circles also puzzled me as I ...
