Tuesday, 22nd September was the Autumn Equinox and almost on queue the weather has changed, most noticeably with a drop in maximum temperatures of over 10 degrees Celsius.

The leaves' colours are only just beginning to change, but noticeable on our rambles are the fungi which appear to pop up overnight. The photos show examples from Bickerton Hill this week.

The object that we usually refer to as the fungus, most often seen during the autumn, is actually only the fruiting body of an organism (called the mycelium) that is largely microscopic and underground.

I have attempted to identify some of the fungi, but as there are over 4,000 species of larger fungi recorded in Britain, I don't feel too bad at leaving some blank! Any corrections/suggestions would be welcome as would any other fungi photos.
