Saturday May 8th, 1pm: Peatlands Park, Co.Armagh. 

A pleasant overcast day with very few hard won finds. The dominant species was Collybia dryophila which was found intermittantly in small groups throughout the site. Also just a single matching pair of Polyporus badius and P. brumale. On the bog there were a few distinct species of Galerina, but we could only key out G. paludosa.
