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!

Meadow Coral (Clavulinopsis corniculata)

This small, yellow, branhed fungus grows amongst grass on lawns and in pasture. It is common and, because of its size, I am sure it is oftgen overlooked. It grows in these solitary clusters, usually in autumn. It is easy to see why it is called the Moeadow Coral; it looks like it could , indeed, be a coral, and it grows in Meadows.

It is not edible of course, there is not enough of it.
