About Me

My photo

I have been interested in nature for most of my life but since I retired I spend as much time as I can exploring the nature reserves and wildlife hotspots of my adopted home, Dorset in southern England. Whilst out I record what I see and take snaps where I can (I am no photographer!) and that forms the basis of my Nature of Dorset website. When I find something new I like to research it and write about it in my nature notes, it is how I learn and hopefully you might find my notes helpful as well!

This website is for the people of Dorset interested in wildlife and for people from elsewhere interested in the wildlife of Dorset!

Bay Boletus (Boletus badius)

This is a widespread and very common fungus usually associated with conifers but not exclusively. Appearing from late summer to early winter it is classic boletes in appearance, largish domed cap, brown in colour with a stout stem and yellowish and fleshy underside to the cap.

It is edible, it has a mild, pleasant taste; nice if you like that sort of thing.
