November 2010. Visited a new area called Everton Wood. En route to this wood we had to drive up a minor road.
The wood is next to open pasture land. Something caught my eye. A huge ploughed field that had been heavily manured was full of quite large fungi. I have never before seen fungi growing in such abundance in a large soiled area.
They were quite large, cap up to 20 cm, whitish grey, all growing or just appearing out of a volva sac. At this stage I cannot identify them so will seek an opinion.
Also whilst in this field I came across what I think might be peziza vesiculosa which also favour manured soil and is frost resistant.
