A profusion of mushrooms and toadstools on Brownsea today, most beyond my limited powers of identification. Fly Agaric (top) was easy enough, and I think the others are Common Yellow Russula (centre), and Rose Russula (bottom).
The Fly Agaric looked like a perfect specimen until my 3 year old son accidentally kicked it over, swerving to avoid a group on the path who had gathered to admire it. The sounds of an ear being clipped would have been heard from the mainland had they not been so understanding - and fortunately there were plenty more elsewhere on Brownsea.
