Here are a few photos from this event. As a reminder you can expand any photo by clicking on it to make it full screen for clearer viewing.The strange looking specimen in the centre was identified as Peltigera canina, (Dog Lichen) which is technically a lichen not a fungi. It was growing on a fallen tree trunk along with the moss. There is a useful web site for idents on plants and some fungi here:
The link takes you to a better photo of the lichen.
There are plenty more which can be uploaded soon together with a list of species found on this visit. The total was around 40 and a new species for the reserve was found making the overall running total 190
