South Wales Fungi Foray Anyone??

Anyone in South Wales interested in going out for a fungi foray? I'd love to have some company. Two pairs of eyes are better than one, so they say.

None

I have been on an organised foray with the Cardiff Naturalists. I know there is a Glamorgan Fungus group. So I might join that. By the way, how did you get your fungi expert star miked??

Got my expert star as there

Got my expert star as there was noone else who knew about fungi on the site when we set it up and the system needed an expert to start off the 'reputation management' system. There has been plenty of discussion on exactly how this is set up and who should be an expert and how points are allocated etc. This will all be reviewed over the coming months.

Sad news

You have made me feel very sad I can see you wandering aimlessly with your camera and trug unfortunately I am far to far away but if it had been 26 years ago I would have gone hunting as I lived on the Gower in Oxwich Bay.I don't know if your a member of the association of British fungi as they have groups all over the country.I joined a month ago only £30 quarterly magazine and they have a forum too,I don't even think you have to be a member to go on the foray's,will have a look and report back.I must say a would not fancy going out with a large group too much noise.

Have had a look on there site and they have a group in Gwent so don't know how far it is from you,or what about starting a group in your area and getting help to set it up from them.
