    Hi folks,

    Since moving closer to the woods I've been mooching around taking pics of the mushrooms in there. There's so much, it's amazing how diverse some of the areas are around here (mid Wales). I've been posting them on that there instagram - my handle on there is @nodigdude. I follow a few of you guys from here on there too, anyone else on there? I seem to have mostly drug dealers following me. :bean:

    Anyway, here's a few needing an ID... I'm no good at IDing mushrooms and my little pocket ID book just doesn;t have the variety that I find most of the time, it is from a couple of decades ago though.

    Thanks in advance. :hamsterdance:

    This one was inside an old tree stump in the woods...

    This one was at the base of a tree in the woods...

    And finally, I hopped a gate and was picking field mushrooms when I found this in a sheep's field at approx 150m up in Wales. (so cute!)

    Cheers Bod. :like:

    I'm thinking the big one could be a tough shank.

    My Collins Gem Mushroom pocket book is from 1996. I may need to update my field book. :lolsmash:

    Nice one man!

    Yes, I have that pocket book too. Think they came as a pair, that and the mushroom one.

    I like my big Collins Tree guide too, bit lumpy to take out with me but leaves are easier to bring home.

    :brider:We're waiting for it to get a bit colder round here before hitting the sheep fields. :brider:

    I bet those fields are already heaving, they are up here and all over Scotlsnd already and I've seen several folks on Instagram in Wales posting good hunt results too

    We've only been up to and around 300m over the last few weekends and found 1 or 2 libs. Lots of other stuff are out though. Finding loads of mottlegills, I think they make you poop so have been leaving them for the sheep. :jeez:

    Where we are it's still wet and 18*C most days, but temps are starting to drop now, so fingers crossed should start to kick in soon.

    I don't mind not finding any, I just enjoy getting up on a hill and breathing. :ind: Shouting at sheep is a fun hobby too.

    I'll be sure to take some pics of my next outing. :mushrooms:

    I didn't have my phone this morning, but I did have a dog poop bag, so they came home with me...

    I'm thinking they're Birch Knight - Tricholoma fulvum...?? Edible according to some sources yet non edible according to others? :brider:

    This morning's finds... There's a few non libs in there. (on the right, couple of bigguns I'm unsure about) These were from a stroll along the Cambrian way bridle path by Teifi Lakes in Wales.

    I'm boggle eyed from looking for the things all day, so will have a break and a look later. :bubbles:

    Lactarius, Megacollybia rodmanii, Rickenella fibula, and in the next post, Tricholoma.
