Canal bank walk Sat Sept 20th

Now we are enjoying misty mornings and sunny days, perfect for Autumn’s  harvest.This year that harvest is bountiful with really good crops of Damsons, Sloes, Crab apples and plenty of lovely mushrooms in the woods. A stroll on Saturday yielded Princes (Agaricus agustus) Hedgehogs (Hydnum repandum)  and Amethysts (Laccaria amethystea) not to mention several different Boletes.

Saturday,  Sept 20 th there is a canal bank at Clonony, if you are interested in joining please contact me or Carol Bergin ; cdbergin@gmail.com
