I went on a scouting walk on the Thursday before and was worried because I did not find many chanterelles or indeed much of anything. However on the day of the walk, due to the increased number of eyes, we actually found quite a few species including some chanterelles that were hiding under the long grass in the sunny spots around oaks. We each found 1/2 a pound or so of smooth chanterelles so it was a successful walk!
