North Dean Wood 06-02-13

I went for a very chilly foray yesterday in North Dean Wood. I went east, from the church along the riverside path. Once again, I was delighted to see the Scarlet Elfcups appearing in ever increasing numbers and brightening up a very, very cold day.  

Elder Whitewash (Hyphodontia sambuci)

Beech Jellydisc (Neobulgaria pura).

Hairy Curtain Crust (Stereum hirsutum).

Jelly Ear (Auricularia auricula-judae).

Jelly Ear (Auricularia auricula-judae).

A forayer holding an enormous Jelly Ear (Auricularia auricula-judae).

Scarlet Elfcups (Sarcoscypha austriaca).

Sycamore Tar Spot (Rhytisma acernium).


  1. The elfcups were amazing, even if you're not so much in to fungi they're worth going to see. Glad to see you're getting the hang of your new camera Ali, some very nice pics there considering it's your first outing with it!

  2. Hi Alison

    I agree with Charlie, really good pictures. What is the fourth photo?

  3. Hi Bruce, I've edited the post as you can see, photos 4-6 are all Jelly Ears!
