Fascinated by Fungi ?

As any mushroom enthusiast will know, the recent unseasonally warm weather, coupled with copious amounts of rain, created perfect growing conditions for wild fungi. So, on a dry but grey late December morning, a group of about 18 of us met at a (top secret!) woodland location just outside Monchique for a “fungi foray” organised by MGAP (Mediterranean Gardening Association Portugal).

The walk was led by charming couple Pat O´Reilly and Sue Parker. Pat, a naturalist with more than 40 years of fungus foray experience, has been broadcasting on this and other countryside topics and written over 20 books. His latest publication “Fascinated by Fungi” is a brilliant introduction to more than 400 mushrooms, toadstools and other fungi.
