Bracket fungi: Along the Rivelin Valley, the fungi are looking good. ‘Many Zoned Polypores’ are common bracket fungi and come in varied colours, growing on dead and dying wood. They used to be used to make jewellery! The Jelly Ear grows mostly on Elder, as it is here, and though it doesn’t look very appetising, apparently it is a real delicacy in some part of the world. Conditions: Cloudy, still day. Temperature: Max 5-Min 3c.
