Gentbos, 6.9.2016

We see an aardappel bovist. The reuzenzwam that is rare, is doing well on one of the fallen trees. Luckily this fungi is tucked away from the people, it would otherwise be cut out. Can become very large, the size of my butt. We are looking at the difference between tamme and wilde kastanjes (difference can be seen in leaves as well as the chestnuts). We wonder why the daalkruid is in BE an indicator of old forests, can it have to do with sour grounds? X In FI it´s mostly the species that first blooms, thus a sign of spring, and mot definitely not to be found in old growth forests, but from deciduous groves.

We see a nest that looks first like a hornet´s nest but turns out is a birds nest. I later on look it up and it looks to be a boomklever´s nest as it sometimes makes its nest in old woodpecker´s nests and makes the doorway smaller by spreading clay around it. I get the same diagnosis from a couple of forest knowers.
