A busy October this year.

We have a pretty busy month this October, please make a note of the events we have listed below, but as always check for details again nearer the time as things could change.

October 5th Thursday: Ynysdawela, a nature reserve near Brynamman. Isabel has kindly offered  to take us around, what is probably a new area for all of us. More details of time and location will be posted nearer the day.

October 7th Saturday: Sandbanks, Llanllwch: Fungus-finding walk. Meet at the Carmarthen 'Park-and Ride' off the A48 west of Carmarthen, SN 382190, 2.00pm. Walk by kind permission of Di and Emily Ivens. Joint meeting with Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales

October 8th Sunday: As this is the normal UK Fungi Day perhaps we can use it for our regular visit to the Black Mountains, which usually turns out to be quite productive. Weather is always a factor up in the wilds of the Black Mountain so please check again around the time.

October 15th Sunday: Fungus day at the Botanical Gardens of Wales. Shall be looking to Bruce to provide another excellent day out for everyone - no pressure Bruce!

October 14th Saturday: An outing to look for items for Tony's Table at the Gardens tomorrow. Last year we went around Pont Felin Gat, but this year we will probably have to look elsewhere because of the improvements going on there.

October 21st Saturday: Pembrey Country Park: Fungus-finding walk. Leader Philip Jones. Meet at the Sidan Restaurant, SN405006, 2:00pm. Country Park entrance charge applies.


  1. Thanks Colin for giving details. Just note that at Ynystdawela there is very limited parking so those intending to go need to consider sharing cars ---- nearer the time.

  2. Thanks Colin. I'm up for pre-fungus day collection on the 14th October. I'll find out if Pont Felin Gat is free to use - I like exploring there.

  3. If I'm free could I join you on pre Fungus walk

  4. Excellent, the more the merrier!

  5. Great. I think Pont Felin Gat will be OK to visit. How about meeting at 11am on the roadside, Saturday 14th October? All welcome. Bruce
