Winter Chanterelle

Posted by Graeme Lyons , Friday, 26 November 2010 17:55

I've been at Broadwater Warren and Hargate Forest today with the RSPB and the Woodland Trust discussing some the issues of heathland restoration. A really useful day and it was good to catch up with some old RSPB colleagues (and meet some new ones!). A bitterly cold day when we were out of the sun and I saw very little other than this Winter Chanterelle that looked familiar but I was convinced it was a new species for me. I realised though when I got home I have seen this species before but I new it under a different name, Trumpet Chanterelle Cantharellus tubaeformis, the perils of using English names.

Pretty good memory to take home from an otherwise empty scene.

I have found cantarellus cibarius in Broadwater Warren on Christmas Day in snow!
