Re: NBN Gateway assists wild fungi foraging

I've just noticed in the NBN eNews - August 2011 that there is a new entry in the top ten refering sites for the Gateway ... wildfoodmushroomsfishing.blogspot.com, a blog dedicated to

catch, forage, find and most importantly devour the freshest seasonal wild food that I can hunt or gather.

Is the NBN aware and/or happy that the Gateway is assisting foragers to find wild fungi?

Re: NBN Gateway assists wild fungi foraging

Or rather are it's data providers...? The British Mycological Society database records ("The Fungal Records Database of Britain and Ireland") are "now open and freely accessible".

Incidently I couldn't find any links pointing to the NBN from that blog - did I just miss them?

Perhaps just an opportunity to promote the wild mushroom codes e.g. http://www.snh.gov.uk/docs/B716565.pdf ?
