When I started recording the wildlife and plants found in my garden, I had no plans to record fungi. However, on taking a closer look at the mushrooms and toadstools in the garden, I became fascinated by them. The shapes, textures and colours are so wonderful, that I decided I had to learn more.
With the help of Mycologists on the Wild About Britain forum (www.wildaboutbritain.co.uk/forums) I learned an awful lot. Many thanks to them. However, Mycology is a very complex subject and I am only a beginner. If there are any errors in any of the identifications of the fungi on this web site, I would very much appreciate your feedback.
Please bear in mind that some fungi are extremely toxic. Never eat any fungus without taking expert advice and always wash your hands thoroughly after handling them.
