Somethin’ Rottin’ in Sannox

On Saturday 12 September Graeme Walker from Scottish Natural Heritage clearly demonstrated that there was somethin’ rottin’ in Sannox.

During a two hour guided walk starting at the Fallen Rocks car park at North Sannox he shared his passion for the incredible world of fungi with over thirty residents and visitors. Well over thirty species of fungi were found and Graeme displayed his extensive knowledge in a most interesting way. The spontaneous applause of the participants at the end of event was a clear measure of their enjoyment of the experience.

Arran Wildlife Festival Chairman Jim Cassels said “This Fungus Foray was an excellent taster for the 2010 Arran Wildlife Festival which will take place from the 12th to19th May 2010 and involve over 70 guided walks, talks and events.”
