Report: The first event of the UK Fungus Day weekend was held at Hillier Gardens, Romsey in their education centre and grounds. We were able to put on a display of locally collected fungi along with demonstrations of making spore prints, microsopes, colouring games, puzzles and the 'fly-agaric' balloon blowing game. The guided walks around the grounds were well attended with over 40 members of the public attending the morning walk. These were led by Eric Janke with support from other group members who also helped with the display as well. It is a big commitment by the group but Hillier Gardens were very pleased with the day and undoubtedly those who attended have learnt something about the fascinating world of fungi. There was quite a wide range of fungi to be found and particularly pleasing was the opportunity to see three species of bird's nest fungi - Cyathus olla (Field Bird‘s Nest), Cyathus striatus (Fluted Bird‘s Nest), Crucibulum laeve (Common Bird‘s Nest)
