Whitlingham Fungi

Whitlingham C.P. and the surrounding area are excellent for fungi, and also benefit from having some experienced mycologists living nearby. I am slowly putting together downloadable guides that cover all of the species that have been recorded locally, adding photos when possible. This page has photographs of a range of species seen at Whitlingham to whet your appetite!
