2 November 2021 : it was a beautiful Autumn day for a walk. Making the most of travelling across Kent to collect drawings from Whitstable I decided to stop at Dering Wood, between Pluckley and Smarden. Managed by the Woodland Trust, this small sanctuary of ancient, semi natural woodland is full of wildlife.
We followed the way-marked trail and it took a while, but gradually the fungi came into focus and we counted over 30 different types in this small woodland.
I can't even begin to identify most of these but it was an absolute joy to discover them all.
If I had known then what I know now
I would have started this diary years ago
