Fungi in Dams to Darnely Country Park, Glasgow

 

This morning, I joined a small, Ranger led, group on a hike around Glasgow’s Dams to Darnley Country Park with focus on mushrooms and fungi. Notwithstanding heavy and persistent rain, the event was well patronised.

Combination of autumn and the mild, wet climate produce a wide variety of fungi and mushrooms in the woodland setting. It transpires there are some 12000-14000 different type of fungi which fall in different categories which include:

  • Bracket
  • Trumpet
  • Puffball
  • Club
  • Cup
  • Bolete
  • Gill

Below are provided a selection of images to illustrate the range and diversity of fungi we encountered this morning:
