This absolutely brilliant event last Saturday (17th) was organised by our Young Nature Watch, with eight teams out hunting for these cleverly-disguised little nests.
Izzy Fry - she of the lovely blog - was in our team and demonstrated her 'natural' aptitude by finding a new nest even before we reached the area we were surveying.
I'm hopelessly uncompetitive but even so I was mightily relieved to spot just one of the 19 nests that my 'team' found. That most of them had been collected previously and 'planted' by the organisers not one whit detracted from the excitement. For a bit more about this, go to Young Nature Watch page.
The pages now display photos of fungi taken by members. This one by Andrew Carter - Trametes versicolour.
Please do not eat any of them.
If it's not me, Elizabeth Forbes, website editor (keen but ignorant), I'll say so.
