As this blog wrote earlier: ’13 November 2017. The day after 12 November. Our last full day in the Veluwe region. We went to the Kootwijkerzand sandy plain.’ Sorry for the photos of that day coming so late. Like this one, of rare Clavaria argillacea fungi growing in a patch of heather amidst the sand.
Around us, more sparse vegetation, until the forest further away.
This 25 October 2017 Dutch video is about two little girls, Roos and Jasmijn, looking for fungi in Mildenburg woodland in Voorne island in the Netherlands; together with wildlife warden Maarten.

Go on the hunt for fabulous fungi! How many different shapes, colours and sizes can you spot?
Fungi are always around us in nature but mostly hidden from view, underground, waiting.
Join Jack as he discovers fabulous fungi at RSPB The Lodge!

Omphalotus olearius is a POISONOUS orange gilled mushroom that to an untrained eye appears similar to some chanterelles. It is notable for its bioluminescent properties. It is found in woodland areas in Europe, where it grows on decaying stumps, buried roots or at the base of hardwood trees. Omphalotus olearius and other Omphalotus species contains the toxin illudin S, and are poisonous to humans. While not lethal, consuming this mushroom leads to very severe cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea.
In September 2017, Omphalotus olearius, the Jack o’lantern mushroom, was discovered for the first time in the Netherlands; on an olive tree, imported from Spain.
This 8 October 2017 video is about autumn wildlife of the surroundings of Ede town in the Veluwe region in the Netherlands.
Fungi, insects, etc.
Michael de Vries made this video.
This 23 November 2017 video from the Netherlands shows flies having dinner at a common stinkhorn mushroom.
This way, the fungus’ spores stick to the flies’ legs, spreading them.
Still 12 November 2017 in the Veluwe. After the stream and clouded agaric mushrooms in the morning, we went to Het Loo again in the afternoon. Where we saw fungi like these ones …
… and these ones (probably Trametes ochracea) …
… and these orange ones …
… and these ones, sharing a branch with lichens.
We hear nuthatch sound.
Small candlesnuff fungi.
And somewhat bigger sulphur tuft fungi.
On the forest floor, we could see wild boar have been digging.
Tinder fungi, on various standing …
… and fallen trees.
Finally, these ones.
Stay tuned for 13 November 2017 in the Veluwe region!
