An early morning walk in Buchan Park near Crawley. If you look closely there is the face of a Green man looking out from the bottom of this stump.
Early October is clearly mushroom time at Buchan Park with signs up warning you not to pick. I have identified the obvious poisonous mushroom but I’m open to suggestions as to what the others are.
This next one is easily recognisable and (according to http://www.mushrooms.org.uk/) this is Amanita Muscaria
Common Name: Fly Agaric
Edibility: Poisonous and hallucinogenic, contains muscarine and ibotenic acid
Season: Late Summer - Autumn
This is possably Chicken of the Woods (Laetiporus sulphureus)- if I'm correct you can eat it!
This is a new chainsaw sculpture (by www.woodlandcentre.co.uk) which stood out in the early morning sunlight.
Just to prove I wasn’t alone…
