I went to the park today which is about 25mins by bus from here and accessable through a small town called Pionki. It was a good few hours entertainment but the woods are mostly plantations pine with very few other types.
I did manage to find a few downed birch branches so I collected a few scraps of bark for tinder and made the world's ugliest birch container.
There were tons of mushrooms everywhere but none that I knew to be edible so they were only collected photographically so I can try to identify them at home.
I'm still pretty sure that this isn't one to be eating though! Pity the pretty ones are the bad ones.
The only wildlife of note was a woodpecker who sounded more like a drummer in the distance until you got right under him. He was pretty impressive looking but you'll have to take my word for it as I've got no zoom on my camera. He's in here somewhere!
That's all for today. I'll let you know how the pitch/resin goes and post more mushrooms when I've figured out what they are.
