First up, before the woods, was this pathside Volvopluteus gloiocephalus
Then into the woods the Oak Milkcap, sometimes called the Oakbug Milkcap, which is an oak mycorrhyzal species which smells of bugs. Its milk is white, only mildly turning yellow-ish on tissue.
There were Amethyst Deceivers
... and plain old Deceivers
There was Hydnum repandum
And Sulphur Knight, Tricholoma sulphureum, in amongst the roadside debris and litter (leaf litter and actual litter).
There was also the rather splendid Thelephora anthocephala
This already recorded Cortinarius bolaris (Dappled Webcap) was very pretty
There were the usual suspects of 1000 Russula nobilis (Beech Sickener) and Lactarius Blennius and Tricholoma sciodes (Beech Knight) and all in all it was a magnificent sight.
On Sunday I managed a lifer spider (Centromerita bicolor) from a grass pile and the little yellow springtail Dicyrtomina minuta
All in all a productive weekend, with the reserve additions for this year now over 400, and the fungus list over 300
