    Aye Up,

    I happened across one of these last year, imaged it and then deleted the image accidentally.

    This year it's taken me quite a bit of searching but I finally found some at a different location (last years didn't re emerge).

    I'm hoping that it is a very rare, amazing-powers-giving foodstuff (like that which deer secretly eat 'cos I ain't having it that they become so powerful just eating moss etc! :lmao:)

    Is it a yellow staghorn fungus, perhaps?

    Aye Up,

    Nice one Osprey - that's the one. :You_Rock_ Fancy it being called Stagshorn too after my quip!

    I've just read up on it - not so rare then, quite common in fact, even if not in my neck of the woods.

    Nowt about the super powers bit though. :lmao:

    It's funny, I saw what might be the start of one of those last week and thought. "Who would bother bringing bright yellow paint into the forest?" :)
