A local wildlife group surveyed the fungi growing in the gardens of Wanstead Quaker Meeting House last month.

“This has been a great autumn for seeing fungi in our area. Led by our own mycologist, Tricia Moxey, and Mike Green from the London Fungus Network, we recorded almost 50 species – and many more probably went undiscovered. The variety of colour and form displayed by fungi is quite remarkable. But one small request: please don’t collect them!” said Tim Harris of the Wren Wildlife Group.
