I am fiddling around with this site at the moment, incorporating The Observant Walker, my new book. Things will be in odd places for a bit!

Fungus Forays


I am sorry, but after nearly fifteen years, I will no longer be taking my public New Forest Fungus Forays.

Please note that my former website,, is now closed.
