How about this for fantastic fungi in Kirklees woods

Autumn walks lead to amazing sights

Summer’s definitely had its last hurrah and autumn is finally with us.

Misty mornings; red, gold and yellow leaves falling from branches; woodsmoke curling from chimneys – even if the days are getting shorter they are definitely getting prettier.

With autumn comes lovely woodland walks where you can spot all sorts of lovely things growing – including some very colourful mushrooms.

Frances Stoner shared these pictures on Facebook of some fantastic fungi she snapped in Caulms Wood in Dewsbury.

She said: “The purple ones are Amethyst deceiver; the white ones are puffballs and the red spotted one is a fly agaric. I’m not sure what the orange one is.

“I run Dewsbury brewing and foraging group – we’ve been a bit inactive lately but we try and figure out what’s what. “The puffball and amethyst deceiver and both edible. I’m not sure of orange – perhaps your readers could help?”
