Rare mushrooms in Dutch nature reserve

This is a Dutch regional TV video, about the official opening of nature reserve Rotstergaaster Wallen near Heerenveen; a reserve with special attention for fungi.

Waxcaps are beautiful, but often rare, mushrooms.

In Europe they are characteristic of old, unimproved grasslands (called waxcap grasslands); a declining habitat.

The Rotstergaaster Wallen in Friesland is a meadow area which has never been ‘improved’ with fertilizer. It is now a nature reserve. 25 of the 47 Dutch waxcap species live there.

Including the rare splendid waxcap.
