We went to a Tomato Festival at West Dean. Arriving early, we were one of the first few cars in the parking field and we found some fantastic horse mushrooms.

Up on St Catherine's Hill, Winchester, there are a great many Elder trees - including some quite old, decaying specimens - this is a great place to go looking for Judas Ear Fungus.

I visited some very old beech woods in the New Forest - and found oyster mushrooms growing on the fallen boughs.

Another bit of urban foraging - we found a local recreation ground covered with rings of superb, delicious field mushrooms.

The Amethyst Deceiver is a name that might conjure up images of a purple-clad comic-book villain. The truth is, it's a common edible mushroom.

Fairy Ring Mushrooms were probably the first wild fungus I learned to reliably identify. I've known for many years that they are edible, but never quite got around to trying them, until now.

I went out looking for morels, but found none. My trip wasn't entirely fruitless though, as I happened across a small patch of St george's Mushrooms.

We were out of a walk at manor Farm Country Park and not 100 yards away from where we caught the shore crabs last Sunday, I spotted a flash of bright yellow amid the leaf litter off to one side of the path.
On further investigation, my hopes were confirmed - it was a little patch of Chanterelles.
