Fungi in Northern Ireland, video


This 9 November 2018 video says about itself:

Fungi are mostly hidden from view, but they are all around us. Neither plants or animal, they play an important in ecosystems, acting as recyclers or partnering with plants in mutually beneficial relationships.

Autumn is one of the best times to spot fungi. This is when many produce their spore-containing fruiting bodies. These can take the familiar mushroom form, or more unusual shapes such as brackets.

In this 360° film, join Sophie Atkinson from the Natural Trust at Springhill House in Northern Ireland. With the help of members of the Cookstown Wildlife Trust, she leads a fungi walk through the grounds of the house.
