When Debbie Carter was out in the woods last month (ie, before the heavens opened!) she spotted lots more fungi -
Dick Budden also spotted a couple - clear to see why the possibly-field-blewitt might be that, but not clear why its name is spelt that way! They are edible but as with all fungi, don't even think of it unless you're an expert, as eating the wrong one could cost you your life.
Debbie spotted yet more, in the woods on Compton Mckenzie’s land on the Stavordale Estate near Pen Sel Wood, which is connected to part of the ancient Gillingham hunting forest created for King John.
The wood urchin is edible, but personally I'd regard it as no more edible than its alter ego, the hedgehog! The turkey tail on the left is now the third colourway for this one - my personal favourite - on this website: see above on this page, and also on the Field Trips page.
