The difference a couple of days makes! At the weekend Crafty Green Boyfriend and had a lovely walk round Corstorphine Hill. You can see some of the lovely things we saw in this post. There were plenty of fungi around, including these weird looking growths
I posted this photo in the Edinburgh Natural History Facebook Group where someone suggested that they were Amanita rubescens (The Blusher) and asked if I could visit again a few days later and take more photos. So, I managed to make time today to join Crafty Green Boyfriend on his regular lunchtime walk round Corstorphine Hill (he works very close to the hill and walks round it most lunchtimes!) and this is what the same fungi look like today, which looks very like a mature Amanita rubescens, though I'm waiting to get confirmation on that.
