As soon as we pulled into the car park, we found clumps of hundreds of Fairies' Bonnets. These had popped up since Wednesday, as there was no sign of them then.
The Candlesnuff fungus that had just started to appear on Wednesday, had grown much bigger. The white ends had started to turn into their distinctive antler shape.

We found some nice bracket fungus, some of which had a pretty yellow edge to it.
Then we stumbled across a miniature forest of toadstools in one little patch of the woods.
