Heyshott, Amblesham and Pulborough fungi

Heyshott escarpment.
Last Wednesday I attended the first weekly conservation work party of the winter season at Heyshott escarpment. Splendid Autumn weather welcomed us and a good turnout of 13 volunteers made short work of the brush cutting. I stopped by the church yard to see some Chicken in the Woods growing on a yew.
  Afterwards I called at Amblesham Common where I found a Southern Hawker egg laying in the mud by a temporary pond on a path. At Fittleworth I visited the Fly agarics again the found some new fungi on the Pulborough Brooks fungi trail including Conifercone Cap, Dog Stinkhorn and Clustered Toughshank.
