  1. Holy Moly – that’s a lot of fungus! Yesterdays was another Club Fungus – Clavulinopsis corniculata.

    And….Number 10 may be at the ring of Brodgar, but it ain’t a Magic Mushroom! I can’t identify a lot of them, but I do recognize a Magic Mushroom when I see it – they are a light beige colour, conical shape, with the very recognizable little ‘pimple’, on top. I went to university in 1974, in rural Wales. Mushrooms on toast had a whole other meaning.
