Hi,

Congratulations and very well done Esther; a striking and unusual picture; looks like something out of sci-fi.

Kind regards, Colin.

If you don't know which fungus it is Esther, how do you know it's edible :unsure:

Congratulations Esther(y)

Just to clarify, not everything that animals or birds eat are safe for human consumption.

Thrushes can eat Yew berries which would be fatal to us, likewise there is a caterpillar that eats only Ragwort :eek:

Also somethings that we can eat can be toxic to other species, chocolate can kill dogs and Rape can poison Hares.

As a reminder, could I draw attention to this thread :)

True but we're way more similar to squirrels which would give a good indication (not a for sure go ahead) of what might be edible. Birds on the other hand eat a lot of things that can kill us and are much less reliable. They use lab rats for a reason.
