Exploring The New Forest – Part 8/8

So here we are!  The last post in my series on our honeymoon in the New Forest.  It’s been great to have you joining me as I share our adventure and I hope you enjoy today’s final post – it’s all about the fungi!  You can catch up on the previous posts here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7.

New Forest Fungi

There was plenty of fungi around in the New Forest while we were there and I totally forgot about identifying them and now I’m struggling!  There was so much variety in both shape, size, colour and everything about them!  It is a really diverse group of organisms!  So sadly, you have a group of lovely fungi photos without identifications.  But!!  Maybe you have secret knowledge of all things fungi?  Drop me a comment below if you think you can identify any of these!
