FLY AGARIC

Bird Watching (UK) - - Your Birding Month -

Ring­ing a never end­ing cir­cuit around Sil­ver Birch trees in damp wood­land, Fly Agaric is the fun­gus of fairy­tales. Im­pe­ri­ously garbed in waxy scar­let and white, there is no more read­ily recog­nised mush­room in Bri­tain. That is just as well, for while its vi­brant col­oration fas­ci­nates, it also in­tox­i­cates. Ad­mire and photograph – but leave be.
