Day 1 – 30 Days Wild

It’s that time of year again! To do something nature related & connect with the natural world every day in June, a “Random Act of Wildness” – as suggested by The Wildlife Trusts.

This morning I got up at 4pm to listen to the Dawn Chorus ๐Ÿ’š ๐Ÿฆ ๐ŸŽถ (Then went back to sleep ๐Ÿ˜†).

Yesterday I saw a lovely species of Moth in the Garden, for the first time, so I have included a video of that video too! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿฆ‹
