Weather: Weather - dry after a little rain during preceding days.

Report: (Sue Rogerson) My barrier key did not work on the new padlock so there was a queue of cars waiting when Sara arrived. Fortunately her new key was successful in letting us in.The numbers foraying were boosted by new members including four young forayers and visitors following last week’s display at the reptillary. Eric did a sterling job talking to the newcomers and explaining about the finds. What would we do without his enthusiasm and knowledge? Darren and Sarah were extremely enthusiastic finding fungi for Eric to identify with their sharp young eyes. The colder weather reduced the number of agarics to be found but a steady flow of species were identified. Of special interest was Spongipellis delectans found on beech by Alan and Jean-Paul found Cortinarius violaceus. These red data list species are not often seen so especially interesting.

I made a voice recording of common species which was quicker in the field. It remains to be seen how much longer it takes to enter the records on Mycorec. I think that is my lack of experience and a corrupted programme.
