Old Sulehay Fungi

A good long walk around Old Sulehay forest looked like being practically bird-free before we came across a huge mixed flock of small birds. Most of the small birds in the wood must have been among the 60 or 70 Blue, Great, Long-tailed, Marsh and Coal Tits, Treecreepers and Nuthatches. Before that the main interest had been the plants.

Common Stinkhorn (Phallus impudicus)

Common Puffball (Lycoperdon perlatum)

Many Zoned Bracket/Polypore (Trametes versicolor or Coriolus versicolor)

Clustered Tough-shank (Collybia confluens) (Thanks to Alan Silverside for ID)

The fruit of the Arum Lilly (Zantedeschia Aethiopica), AKA Lord's & Ladies or Cuckoo Pint. I photographed one of the flowers back in April.
