A surprising selection of  fungi can be foung along the shingle ridges of the Beach Reserve, two species which are easy to find at the moment are Blackening waxcap (Hygrocybe nigrescens) and Sulphur Tuft (Hypholoma fasciculare). The picture below show a fresh Blackening Waxcap, as the fungi grows the cap and stem will start to turn black.
