WILDLIFE

Neil in Wonderland!




by Webmaster, 27th September 2019

Imagine finding more than 200 of these in a woodland near you...

Porcini mushrooms are normally solitary, with individuals at least 50 metres apart. But in one dense woodland near Abergavenny, Monmouthshire, forager Neil Stratton found a cluster of more than 200, many of which were just a few centimetres apart.

The 52-year-old, who forages for his own food, rather than commercially, has decided not to pick the fungi or to reveal the location, so others don't pick the forest dry.

Porcini mushrooms are worth up to £100 per kilo, but Neil would rather use the experience to encourage others to get out into their local woodland and see what they can find.
