It's a warm and damp autumn day today and it looked beautiful in Colinton and Craiglockart Dells by the Water of Leith.
I took quite a lot of photos of fungi as the Water of Leith Conservation Trust are leading a fungi walk round the Dells next week and wanted me to help them find out where the best fungi are at the moment.
The puffballs on the mossy wall up above Colinton weir are looking great at the moment
there's lot of candlesnuff around at the moment, I took this photo in Spylaw Park
and some funnel caps have suddenly appeared
Honey fungus is never good to see (as it kills trees) but is totally fascinating for the way that it displays its mycelia once the tree starts falling apart, there are no fruiting bodies at the moment, just the mass of black mycelia
Then there are more fungi, which I'll need to check out to identify them.....
