OS Grid areas: SU1713

Weather: After a period of some very warm days the previous Tuesdays rain was not enough to make the fungi grow and the earlier cold weather had delayed the orchids flowering.

Report: (Sue and Alan): As there is a boggy patch on the site it was suggested that wellies may be needed but as it had been so dry none were worn, perhaps Eric should have done so because he sank nearly upto his knee in mud at one point. We did find a few Agarics including three Russulas, Paul took nice photos of some Myxomycetes which he later identified.

Afterwards some of us went back to Sues for something to eat and managed to do some microscopy too.

Note: The coprinopsis was found to have spiny spores and turned out to be C echinospora, a new record for the Group.
