Peachysteve and I had a walk up to the Sweet Chestnut plantation with Basil and Lace and shown below are the photographs of what we found. Does anyone know the history of Gallows Pole Hill? Who planted the wood and was anyone ever hanged there as the name suggests?
Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus sulphureus) on Sweet Chestnut (Castanea sativa). Steve's photo above and mine showing the point of attachment below.
Blushing Bracket (Daedaleopsis confragosa) on oak (Quercus. sp). Steve's photos above and below.
I am trying to plot different locations in Calderdale for the H.galndulosae so I went to the park for no other reason that to get another record in a different place. It's Oliver's 6th birthday tomorrow so I was in a rush to get to the shops so I didn't hang around for long.
Heteromycopha glandulosae on Witches' Butter (Exidia glandulosa) attached to oak (Quercus. sp). These must have been right at the top of the tree and I found them only because the branch had snapped and was hanging down towards the ground. It looked to have happened quite recently.
