Fungi Forays

In autumn when the weather is wet but still warm enough to provide good conditions for growth, woodland floors burst with mushrooms and toadstools. Both living and dead trees provide habitat for bracket fungi, which cling to the bark. Fungi can be poisonous, so make sure to always take an identification guide or an expert with you.
