A post from Nigel Stringer
Whilst out today in the Whitland area looking for rusts I came across a stack of Big-bale silage adjacent to a track leading to a farm. The bales were contaminated with the "split-gill" fungus - Shizophyllum commune. This fungus totally devastated the silage bales in Ireland in the 1990's and is spreading across the UK.
Just down the road from this site is Bryngwynt Chapel. Even though we have had a few frosts this week there was a fine troupe of waxcap fungi on display in the burial ground.
