Fly Agaric

The above brightly coloured mushroom was photographed along the Railway Walk, not far from the Gravel Hill section of the Brook. The recent snow and frosty weather caused it to wither away and die.

This fungus is also known by its scientific name, Amanita muscaria. It grows in more sheltered woodland areas, and experts strongly advise that it should NOT BE EATEN, as ingesting this plant can have fatal consequences!
