Yorkshire Pudding - Yum!

A Yorkshire Waterfall
Yorkshire Pudding - well that's what it looks like!
probably really called Slippery Jack
Death by Chocolate - probably really called Artist's Fungus
Gandoderma applanatum
Bolete Species
Yellow Swamp Russula (Russula claroflava)? or Russula lutea
The Miller?
Bolete Species
Fancied a change from the coast, so went looking for a beauty spot we were taken to as children. It's maybe ten years since my last visit, and it turned into a fungal foray. There were many interesting looking specimens, but they were hard to photograph in the overcast conditions and a full tree canopy - reminder, take a flash next time & a smaller lens! The waterfall was still in operation. Heard: Nuthatch, Treecreeper, Bullfinch, Dipper, Spotted Flycatcher and actually saw Great Spotted Woodpecker, and Chaffinch! I thought I'd have the location to myself, but it was crawling with dogwalkers (who'd knocked over many of the fungi) and ramblers!
