The Fourth Kingdom - Fungi

12 Aug 2020 12:26AM   Views : 694 Unique : 469

The fungi that we see above ground are actually the fruiting bodies, growing from a huge mycelium that spans vast tracts under the earth. Given any woodland, it will contain a greater weight of fungi than trees. We missed Fungalpunk Dave's fungi walk at Arley Hall this last time, but hopefully we'll catch another of them sometimes soon. Later in the year is the best time. There are some fantastic displays of fungi all over the Arley Hall estate, so iot's worth taking the walk to learn to see what is actually there.

Here was our guide a couple of years back, the one and only Fungalpunk Dave.

And a nice selection from the hundreds of species that are at Arley Hall.















The Fourth Kingdom, by the way, refers to the fact that fungi do not belong to the main groupings of plants and animals. They are what they are, quite unique.

The Amazing Dalbeattie Museum Trust

This is a small but packed museum in Dalbeattie, Dumfries and Galloway. It covers a couple of floors in a corner shop location and is packed with artefacts, the bad news for us being that many of them are things that we have owned or used as youngste...

Golden Slumbers

There's an exhibitions of Egypt's Golden Mummies at Manchester Museum, and we went down to see it this afternoon. I travelled very light this time, in the end using just the Pentax MX-1 compact camera. The conditions were very dark and the exhibits l...
