Thanks, John

I have been foraging for edible fungi for about 50 years. In recent years, I have been a member of the Thames Valley Fungus Group, based in my home town. Some of our forays are joint ones with Oxfordshire or Hampshire groups.

I am not one of the most able at identifying species and, with 10kg of cameras and lenses with me, I can't be carrying or consulting books, of which I own many. The various groups have experts, some of which are authors of books, including Richard Fortey (TV) of the Oxfordshire group. Hampshire has a very able man.

As of 2-3 years ago, I am sort of unofficial foray photographer for TVFG.

The body is willing but the mind is weak.
