Celestial sight to watch out for this Autumn


VENUS JOINS JUPITER NOVEMBER 13


Two of the brightest celestial objects in our skies will have a super close encounter at dawn on November 13.


Neighbouring planets Venus and Jupiter will appear together low in the eastern sky, so prepare the binoculars!


★★★ Foraging for fungi


When? - September to November is generally the best time for a mushroom hunt and many appear soon after rain. The moist conditions quickly trigger the fruiting process and many mushrooms can appear to ‘pop up’ overnight.


Where? - Mushrooms and fungi of all types are, quite simply, everywhere. Once you begin


looking and start to develop your ‘foragers eye’, you’ll be seeing them all over the place – in woodlands, meadows, grassy verges, hedgerows and even on thatched roofs! Different species grow in different habitats and over time you will become accustomed to where different species appear.


What? - Horse, wild, field and puffballs are readily available and check wildfooduk.com for top 10 safest


mushrooms for novice foragers. For complete and comprehensive information try the British Mycological Society www.britmycolscoc.org.uk & www.abfg.org


For local foraging experts and courses: Try wildfoodwalks.co.uk for courses on Berries, nuts, roots, lichen and fungi. www.devonwildlifetrust.org for talks and fungus forays in the area.

FORAGER’S ETIQUETTE


Birds on the Move Did you know? 8 October is UK Fungus Day!


Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust are organising two bird watch events at Berry Head this autumn. BiRDS on THe MoVe 14 october 2017 Migration times can be very confusing for birdwatchers but with bird expert Mike Langman this one day event will guide you through the, sometimes, tricky identification challenge. October is the month of the rarity so anything could turn up and Berry Head has a great reputation for unusual migrants. If you have been before no two years will ever be the same! 10.00AM - 4.00PM Meeting point: Berry Head Main Car Park, price: £35.00 Booking Essential AUTUMn MiGRATion WATCH 4 november Early November can produce some of the most spectacular overhead movements of birds and given the right conditions thousands of birds could be on the move in huge flocks. Redwings, fieldfare, wood pigeons and thrushes are a common sight as well as a supporting cast of finches, pipits - you just never know what else might turn up. The early start optimises the chances of witnessing migration at its best. Around 9.15am after a good morning’s bird watching, we’ll warm ourselves up at the Guardhouse Café with a hearty full breakfast and tea/coffee. 7.30am - 10.00am. Meeting point: Berry Head Main Car Park. Price: £16.
