Kilvey Hill. 26th Feb

On the way to kilvey hill, growing on a mound of wood mulch were loads of Stump Puffballs, Lycoperdon pyriforme, (above). I didn't expect to find much but there are always crusts about and other bracket fungi.

Below is Velvet shank, Flammulina velutipes.

Looking rather healthy was a lovely display of Purplepore Bracket, Trichaptum abietinum. This bracket is easy to identify due to its striking purple pore surface. This becomes more brown with age.
