It's been a wonderful year for fungi. Loads of wonderful shapes and colours all over the place. Among the bewildering variety we've seen this year has been an outbreak of something that looks horribly like trails of vomit:



We spotted this example at Chesters Hillfort last weekend and there were many others about there and at other locations, sometimes yellow, sometimes milky-coloured.

I assume it is a fungus? And not just some bilious cacher......

Excuse me a moment.....

Saw a lot of it last week, some in thicker patches than in the photo. It looked like hummus spread on the grass... Lots around Cookster's Drimmie series.

Who's the expert? At least it's not as repugnant as those clear blobs we had a lot of last year!

Yea. Think this is what we saw in 'Letham Loot' today.

Faith thought it was more a mould than a fungus when I pointed it out but never seen it before.

We also spotted some lovely fungi growing out of the underside of a branch about 12 foot up in the air. The tree (and branch) was very much alive. Maybe we should have looked more on the ground and found the cache!!!

PS If you want to see them they are on the log......I can load them to there but not mastered getting them on here Embarassed Embarassed sorry

Looks like it's one of the Tremella family of Fungi (The most famous being Tremella Mesentrica or Witches Butter)

Most are edible and a few are used in soups and stocks
