Fungi Foray. This has been arranged by kind invitation of CNHS members Tim & Jenny Francis. Weather dependent.
Meet at Humberlands. Access is a driveway from the A137 approximately 100 metres west of the 40mph speed limit sign at ‘Garden City’, Lawford. It is signed Parringtons Farm and Public Bridleway. At the bottom of the drive, turn left (signed Humberlands). The grid reference is TM075312. There is a bus stop (routes 103/104 from Colchester) at Garden City; Humberlands is a short walk down permissive paths and bridleways from there. Please note that SatNav is not very helpful!
Join CNHS fungi expert Sarah Manning for a walk around this most interesting site, which offers a wide variety of habitats. This is a good opportunity to visit a private nature reserve and see what we can find - last year we found so many species that we barely got as far as the wood! We will spend two to three hours looking for fungi, depending on what we find.
You will need good walking boots (some areas are quite uneven and there are lots of springs, so some spots can be permanently damp/boggy) and appropriate clothing depending on the weather. Obviously the event is weather dependent. It is essential to book your place by contacting Liz Cutting who is also happy to provide any further information you may need. Email email@example.com preferred but those without email facilities are welcome to phone 01206 394184.
