Excellent

There my favourite fungi I found 8 different ones today I am lucky as live in a remote location so have lot's of unimproved pasture on the doorstep this area was a stone quarry in the 15th century and only has sheep grazing on it rather windswept but lovely spot.

This Waxcap is not common -

This Waxcap is not common - only on calcareous unfertilised grassland. Possible this species is at Stackpole but not sure. There are H.calciphila there - 'RED' species on endangered list

The more I know the more I realise I don't know
