Fungi to be With TV

Check out some of our fun educational video segments on the local fungi of Hampstead Heath and environs. I have also included a walk I had with Chris Packham which aired on the BBC several years ago.

I will be adding new segments during the year so feel free to revisit from time to time. This first video looks at Spring Fungi…..the St.Georges mushroom.

 

Another of the earlier fungi is Chicken of the Woods……Tree Gold!

 

 

A nice collection of summer fungi, the Russula commonly know as The Brittle Gills, Lactarius- the Brittle Caps, among others……

 

 

A quick look at the characteristics of the Perenniporia fraxinea, a rather nasty root rotter .

 

 

An interview with Chris Packham for Natures Calendar in 2009.
