The Natural History Club visited Felbrigg Hall recently for a fungus foray. Approximately 20 people joined Mr Worton where they searched the deer park and Great Wood for different species of fungi. Because of the very dry summer and autumn, the fungi at Felbrigg gave a pretty poor show. Only 41 identified species this year compared with the usual 60-80.
The list of finds is added to the National Trust's database, and one year we found a species that was new to Norfolk!
The club makes about 20 visits a year which include bird watching at Minsmere, seeing the seals at Horsey and learning all about trees at Thetford Forest.
