Guess what we found on our Lorna Doone walk!

stinkhorn Doone Valley
detail stinkhorn fungus

Exmoor walks with wildaboutexmoor never fail to deliver!!

I’ve always wanted to find a stinkhorn fungus, and there one was!

Every bit as revolting as I expected….but so fascinating. The fungus secretes a smell like rotting flesh, which attracts the flies that then pollinate it…amazing!

We also saw a pair of redstarts and a sunbathing adder, plus a big herd of Exmoor ponies, so all in all quite a haul!

Our next walk in the Doone Valley is on Saturday, July  20th so come and join us….hopefully our delightful fungus will still be there.
