Report: (Eric Janke) The distance from the Forest and the possibility of being searched by the Qinetiq security guards seemed to have put off the majority of members foraying on the Eelmoor SSI. Only Sue Rogerson, Alan Lucas and Eric Janke joined Betty Hansell, the local contact, to survey the site. To make things easier for the guards, all three of the group left various items at home. So with just two rucksacks, one collecting box and with Eric in borrowed foot-ware, off we boldly went... Even with only four pairs of eyes to see them, the range of fungi were enough to fill three recording sheets in the field with several other specimens disappearing into Eric’s toolbox. This is a considerable improvement on the paltry 35 recorded on our previous visit during a drought in 2005! Of particular note were the number of Lactarius torminosus growing under the birches, a lovely cluster of the pink Mycena adonis found by Alan, the number of and range of Helvela species (macropus, elastica, lacunosa, crispa...), Enteloma incanum with its green stipe and Trichoglosum hirsutum, not to mention the Poronia punctata, which was more exciting to Betty than to those of us more used to seeing it in the Forest. However, the find of the day (tarra!) has to go to Sue for another RDL species - Gloeoporous dichrous, growing on an oak branch. A full list may be slightly delayed as, following the theme of the day, the recording sheets were left in Eric's car but at least Alan got his wellies back to keep his feet dry on the IoW :-)
