Nice group of Plums and Custard - Tricholomopsis rutilans. Looks good enough to eat - but it isn't. Boo!

Shaggy Inkcaps - Coprinus comatus. An example shwoing young and old specimens. Older caps deliquesce into a blacky inky mass. Young ones are excellent to eat. Although they must be cooked immediately after picking.

Lepista saeva (Wood Blewits or Blue-Legs) from autumn - December. One of the tastiest wild mushrooms found in pasture and heathland.

Strange but true. Fly agarics are consumed by reindeer. Waiting until nature calls, a willing individual can then collect and drink its urine to experience the psychotropic effects! I don't urge anyone to do this or not to either - but it apparently is legal.

Just three examples of the interesting fungi out there at the start of the mushroom season. It's been a great one (the best I've known) in the UK so far!

Fly Agarics (Amanita muscaria) out in their 100's today! They are so photogenic and gorgeous. Not ones for the menu though!
