This strange-looking object was found amongst the leaf litter by a keen-eyed volunteer during our recent Great Nut Hunt (thanks Sue!). This is the cross-section picture after cutting it in half.
It may not look like much in this photo and as of yet it has not been formally identified to an exact species. However we are fairly certain that it is a truffle and the first one to be found at Denmark Farm.
This just goes to show that you never know what you might find whilst out and about as long as you keep your eyes peeled. The winter months are a great time to get out in nature and see so many amazing sights. Denmark Farm Conservation Centre remains open from dawn to dusk so do pay us a visit if you’re nearby. http://www.shared-earth-trust.org.uk/en/access.htm
