Report: (Mike Harrison) This foray took place on a wet and windy day. As a result of concerns expressed about the safety of old birch trees at the Herbert Plantation in the high winds forecast, it was decided to switch the second part of the foray to Newtown Common.
In the event, 20 TVFG and HFRG members braved the bad weather. We spent around an hour at Sandham, which despite the lateness of the season, delivered some interesting grassland fungi, including Clavulinopsis umbrinella (Beige Coral), with only 1 previous VC12 record, Geoglossum fallax and Trichoglossum hirsutum var. hirsutum. The Mahonia rust Cumminsiella mirabilissima, was a first for the VC. Newtown Common proved even more fruitful, with 60 species found. The highlights were Laxitextum bicolor: another VC first and Hydnellum spongiosipes (Velvet Tooth), Cortinarius uliginosus (Marsh Webcap) and somewhat unusually, Cudoniella acicularis (Oak Pin) growing on a fallen alder.
