Fungi is fascinating, and it's literally everywhere you look, especially in woodlands and damp outdoor areas. Our team have recently undertaken a fungus survey around our site and among the common fungi that we see quite regularly such as common and shaggy inkcap, there have been some fantastic highlights including jelly babies, parrot waxcap and poison pipe - what incredibly wonderful names!
