Autumn is the time for admiring all the wonderful fungi in the woods.
Roeburndale was a favourite place of Pat Livermore's to visit . She was a fungi expert and listed many species, some rare, in these woods.(see some of Pat's list on our thinkfree link here).
Pat and her husband were seen often hunting for microscopic fungi with tiny hand held lenses and collating them for posterity. I have a particular fondness for all things neglected in the natural world and that includes micro organisms that create the beautiful macro environment of woods. Here is another photo showing the texture and intricacy of our mosses, fungi and woods.
