Chicken of the Woods, Calderdale

Laeitiporus sulphureous

Chicken of the Woods in Longwood this a.m.

This weather should be wonderful for fungi though there were very few in Longwood. I think you would need very strong teeth for this chicken which was about 20 feet up the tree.


Thanks for the post Michael

That's good photo Bruce. Looks as though it may be on an Oak tree. There is also good chicken of the woods on an old oak pollard in the park woods at Tod. Must be a good year for it.
