NORWICH: Some winter fungi at Catton Park

8th December 2019

It had been a few weeks since I'd managed to get out and go for a walk, so I took a quick walk down to the wooded edge of Catton Park before strong rain saw me return home. There were very few birds about, but there was still some fungi, the most interesting of which were Ramaria flaccida, a type of coral that grows beneath conifers, and Fenugreek Stalkball, a tiny species that grows in cracks in tree trunks and smells of fenugreek when dried.
