Weather: Although there had been rain in the preceding weeks the weather was kind for those attending.

Report: The HFRG exhibition and foray was held once again during the last few days of the Autumn half-term to make it easier for families to attend. The event followed the succesful format of previous years thanks to the efforts and input of many HFRG members. A fine display of well over hundred species of fungi were on display in the Reptile Centre hut along with posters, screen displays of New Forest fungi and micrcoscope demonstrations of the smaller fungi. There were more activities for children this year with puzzles and balloon blowing to show how 'the mushroom got its spots'. Forays were held in the morning and afternoon each day and there was plenty to see in the surrounding woodland including the rare and spectacular Hericium coralloides (Coral Tooth). For the enthusiasts Crustoderma dryinum was on show after Alan found it the day before the event in the nearby woods. This is the second only Hampshire site for it.
