The Sunday of Biology Week (13th October) is UK Fungus Day, and alongside this we hope lots of people will head outdoors and record some of what they see.

Over UK Fungus Day you can log your fungal finds with iSpot using the descriptive tag #ukfungusday. You can also share your sightings with the #ukfungusday tag on Twitter and check out our Storify on UK Fungus Day
