I deal with all sorts of strange call outs on the railway I got called to these the other week I was told there's two sacks in the 4 foot that's the space between the rails giant puffballs I believe, there older trains that run on this line so the toilets flush straight onto the tracks I've seen tomatoes and all sorts growing between the turds.IMG_0899.JPG

you can see the toilet paper on tracks it's not worth getting hepatitis for a mushroom

lol I wouldn't have touched them in a million years I've worked on the tracks for a while and I've seen all sorts needles turds tampons leptospirosis is a major concern jonnys the lot so those mushrooms were swerved.

Been out the same place had a good basket full. "Hedge Hogs" some of the biggest "Chanterelle's" i've ever found some "Winter Chanterelle's" taken couple of "Common Yellow Russula's" to try. A new one for me and there are loads of them but they are nearly aways dirty or the slugs have got them. Also the one that look like stones are "Birch Polypore's" to try, very interesting on that web site.

The "Birch Polypore" growing on a dead silver birch. It has lot of properties Anti septic, Anti fungal, Anti Cancer and you can take a strip off the bottom and use as a plaster which will stick to it self, but can't find it in my books only on that web site.

Few bay bolutus and broken up fields for a stock

What is the Boletus that has the reddish sponge mate? I don't recognise that one. The other recon is a "Bay Boletus".

Cheers Arry
They're both bays mate, it looks funny in that pic but don't know why

No mate "False Chanterelles" are a darker orange usually with a round flat cap and cut orange. Orange gills orange stem. See if I can get a pic up of one, saw a small one today and most I find growing on wood ant nests but not always.

The real "Chanterelle" cuts white like in this photo.

The "Winter Chanterelle" also know as "Trumpet Chanterelle" nickname "Yellow Leg" is a really good mushroom just starting in Fir Woods right under the brash and needles, hard to spot at first but once you get your eye in you find loads. Dry really well and will crush to a powder in a pestle and mortar.

Cheers Arry

Well sliced one up and fried couple of slices, first it tasted nice and mushroomy then a bitter after taste, not so good for eating. But read up on them on that web site very very interesting. Also tried the "Common Yellow Rusula" bit mild and a bit peppery.

Nice bit of grub you rustled up there mate. Good show of mushrooms. Been a really good year as it started very early and stayed very mild and damp.

Many years ago there was an old fellah in the village told me about some type of Mushroom that he called Bloods, he said they had to be soaked over night in salt water and in the morning the water was blood red, he was not a man who made things up but i have no idea what he was talking about.
