Expecting to see many more mushrooms on my heathland walk

On my most recent heathland walk, where I even ventured down into Folly Bog, I saw many mushrooms. Today I’m on another heatland walk, and am hoping to see many more varieties of mushrooms.

Here are the photos of the mushrooms on my most recent walk. Do I know what they are, no I don’t, and we’ve numerous books on mushrooms at home. Closer study is needed to identify them, which is my next challenge.

  1. Parasol, Fly agaric with the white spots washed off, Puffball and Boletus, probably the Birch Boletus. One good to eat, one not worth eating, one possible and one poisonous.

  2. Bernard, you’re an absolute whizz identifying these mushrooms. I was sure the red topped one was a young fly agaric, but not certain. Your knowledge of nature, flora, and fauna is impressive, you’re a proper countryman.
