I suspect foraging for sausages is optimistic.

West Yorkshire: found plenty of hedgehogs, edible russula and big ceps yesterday. Not a good flush yet, but they're there

Checked out my patches today,not a lot about at all,a few panther cap/Blushers,not sure how to tell the difference so not worth the risk.
I think its still a bit too warm still,will try again next week.
On the plus side though found some field mushrooms on a cricket pitch on the way home and just had them on toast!

Dorset way I've found Oysters and a single Cep. Also some Russula but they were too far gone to properly ID.

yep, blushers seem to be fruiting all over. Also, i keep finding great Boletus luridiformis - does anyone here eat these?

Certainly a good start for me; There was a flush of various boletus around here including some penny buns but seems to have slowed now, finding the odd big older ones but not many young ones. No rain for a while here in wilts, hopefully it will also slow the slugs down as there are a lot about.

Blushers and russullas are hard to avoid stepping on in my favourte spot. Not been confident enough to pick the blushers but in the last few days i have found both aminata spissa and panther caps so i'm getting to the point of thinking about picking some....

Lots of beefsteak fungus around, I have seen some slippery jacks, deceivers (amethyst and original), milkcaps, wood mushrooms, stump puffballs, and a very few chantrelles.

I think millers are coming up in an area where i have found penny buns although they could well be something else. Still trying to learn this one. Cheers

I am finding both of these at the moment. I think both are good eating but the blushers have better flavour.
