Discovering Wonderful Waxcaps

9th September 2021

Yellow waxcapAutumn is the best time to spot fungi and waxcap fungi are amazing!

They are found in old grasslands and, whilst they can be elusive, they have been found on Worsaw Hill before. Their bright colours make them easy to spot - there are white, yellow, red, pink and even green ones called Parrot Waxcaps.
