Apart from the magpie inkcaps, which aren't edible, we haven't had that many yet. I have found a few in odd places, but not that many yet.

Had a few parasols this year but nothing else. I long for giant puffballs but haven't seen any here for years, I was rather shocked when I first saw them, but (apart from chanterelles) they are almost my favourites!

Interesting observations - speaking personally, it's been the most spectacular year for Ceps for many years. Not much in the way of other shrooms (except other boletes). Last two or three years have been pants, so very welcome.

york was 4 kg rather than we cant eat all those but other folk will, no gift packs this season

blewits delux at the mo.

very poor cotw season

there seem to be a lot of "strangers " and many old chums are a bit missing or in small numbers

lots of "cybes "

microclimate stuff is important to shrooms

i should learn a lot more about what is dinner as the shop seems to have a different range of potentially yummy ( or yummy once ) shrooms

not dinner afaik seems to have been a theme recently

Not for foraging, but it seems to have been a good year for magpie inkcaps too. Saw some on a roundabout near us. I think they are generally uncommon, but seem to have taken to the area round our firewood cutting and also the recently laid woodchip on the roundabout.

We have one bolete, but not sure which one it is. Trouble is the slugs love it, so I don't have many intact ones to identify.

is it red/yellow and a bit ugly looking on instinct? = probably satanus(the name is a hint)
ans= no goto maybe edible

goto phillips or rogers

the details matter but they are easy to follow in both

if you show us a snap we will have a go at giving it a name
normal disclaimers apply

Masses of parasols this year, and they seem to have a second season. I had a good crop about 5 weeks ago which I am sure was earlier than usual, and now they are starting again! Almost too many. Would they dry and keep if treated properly (i e How?)

If I get one with enough to identify I will look in Phillips or Collins, but haven't managed to get a very positive ID yet. Don't think it is satanas, but as I say, the slugs get to them before I have a chance. Not many fungi here yet, but probably will get more later.
