We spent the morning at the Hackfall Woods in the Nidderdale Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). As we drove we could see the first snow of the season which had dusted the house roofs during the night. Even though a bitter North wind blew in the morning, all our participants showed up and they were rewarded with a beautiful clear blue sky by noon! It was a true pleasure to teach and mushroom hunt in this place as it is a mature mixed woodland with some amazing views.
Thank you very much to the organizers at Nidderdale AONB and particularly to the Woodland Trust and the friends of Hackfall Woods for all their help and support! Hope to see you all next spring!
