Hello Lynne,
Sorry this is a late reply, I never realised there was this section.
I expect you are referring to what is now called the Jelly Ear. This is common in all English counties and can be seen growing on lilac, beech, birch, sycamore and quite a few other deciduous trees, but Elder is the usual host.

So it is wasteland where you want to be heading as this is where you are most likely to see elder. Do not go in dry weather as the 'ears' dry out quickly, so it is best to go after a period of heavy rain.

This will make them swell up again and be at their most photogenic.

Wild Mushroom Identification - Recommended Books for All Skill Levels:
Every amateur mycologist should have a decent library of books, here are the top five books I highly recommend for wild mushroom identification:
 
1) Field Guide to Edible Mushrooms of Britain and Europe (Field Guides)  - Great layout with superb images - Peter Jordan
3) Mushrooms: A comprehensive guide to mushroom identification  - This one is a proper belter with loads and loads of good technical data - Roger Phillips
4) Complete Mushroom Book: The Quiet Hunt   - A lovely book by a lovely man. Antonio Carluccio
5) Mushrooms: River Cottage Handbook No.1 - Always a favourite from Hugh's fungi specialist friend, John Wright

It is important to have at least 3 books so you can cross reference and cover as many species as possible
