Our annual fungi foray sees the afternoon spent walking around the reserve, finding and identifying the many species of fungi. The different habitats at the heath range from grassland, heathland and woodland, as such offering an abundance of fungi. Some species are gathered by Jonathan during the walk for further, or ease of, identification.

This walk is very popular so please do book in advance.
