A little break in the rain at the beginning of October gave me a chance to go and check out the fungi in the woodland at National Trust Ringmoor just behind Okeford Hill, the ancient woodland pasture has some magnificent Oak, Ash and other trees in it’s 130 acre area and plenty of fallen trees and limbs which encourage a variety of fungi at this time of year.

It took a little time for me to get my eye in under the canopy of trees, I looked for old trees and what was around them and soon I started spotting them. Some of them were really tiny, about 1cm across but it gave me a chance to use my 60mm Macro lens. I spent a couple of hour wandering and seeing what I could find.
