Whose left the Orange Peel?…

After my stint at watching visible migration today I thought I would go into Raw Nook NR to see if I could ID any fungi that might be showing.  However, my fungi knowledge is limited to say the least and if I found any would I be able to ID correctly?

Well I was walking passed the pond to where the flooded woodland area is (on your right if coming from the bridge) when I noticed some orange bits that someone had thrown into flooded area.  I walked into the area only to discover that it wasn’t orange peel but FUNGI which was orange.

It was really unusual but beautiful at the same time.. I took photos and went home to investigate.

And I was right…well in a way it is an Orange Peel fungus Aleuria aurantia and is a site first for my records.
