Lets make it Friday the 13th…stated my good friend Joan! a very knowledgeable fungi and plant expert. She kindly offered to help me in conducting a fungi survey at Raw Nook nr… Fungi is a subject I knew little about but the survey would boost my knowledge and the species list for the reserve. On the day Joan brought her friend Veronica another fungi expert so the seen was set..

Whilst I ‘ tried ‘ to learnt the techniques of identifying fungus the two ladies were busy finding a credible 15 different species..
Now I had found 4 easy to ID species prior to their visit which brings the total for the site to 19 species…and I’m sure there will be more finds to come!
