These are taken home, frozen, dried, or bottled for future use. Mushroom picking is a relaxing type of holiday; not only do you get plenty of walks and fresh air but also the opportunity to enjoy camaraderie, competition and to extend your knowledge of fungi.

Squirrels are also busy gathering supplies for the lean winter months ahead. You will come across the Polish dark brown squirrel gathering nuts to bury. These white bellied squirrels are quite tame in the parks.

Autumn is a lovely time to visit Poland; when trees are laden with fruit, the leaves on the trees are lovely shades of red and gold.

Come in September when it's still fairly warm and enjoy a country holiday of yesteryear as people forage for mushrooms, berries, rose hips to turn into tea and experience a completely different kind of holiday.
