Thursday 31st March 2016 - Firswood (Slime Flux)

En route to Firswood Metrolink station, we found a roadside Sycamore that had been cut down, probably because of vehicle damage, leaving a stump about 5 feet high. The fungal/slime growths were quite impressive. Thanks to John Taylor of the North West Fungus Group for identifying as Slime Flux - 'sap that is hosting an array of bacteria and fungi but not caused by any species in particular'.
