Quite often in this blogging lark I have a post all worked out that for one reason or another never quite manages to make it to publishing. Normally time is my biggest enemy and as I like to keep things current there is never a convenient way to slip those that miss their slot back in. A visit to the RSPB’s Cwm Clydach reserve in March though was too good to leave on the cutting room floor as it was one of the best fungi foraging expeditions I have undertaken to date. What follows are those species I have been able to identify so far, but as always feel free to correct me if I’ve got anything wrong. The crusts in particular were an absolute nightmare to try and separate.
We kick off 2023 with a tick and twitch event at WWT Llanelli before enjoying Grey Plover at Newton Point and Turnstones at Sker.
