A guided walk about the Fungi of Giflach featuring Waxcaps and led by Ray Woods

A guided walk featuring the Waxcaps of Gilfach led by Ray Woods. Waxcaps are brightly coloured non-edible fungi which are commonly found growing on grasslands which have not been improved for agriculture. In the UK, Wales and Scotland are globally important for this group of fungi. Some have shiny bright mushroom caps, others look like corals and a few look like blackened dead fingers pushing out of the earth!
