A Greener Childhood

. . .I remember more countryside, more greenspaces, more woodland, more birdsong, more sightings of wildlife, such as rabbits, foxes and badgers.

Sunny days. Less pollution, less superficial ideas and materialism.

Fun was exploring and adventures outdoors; the new park, or going to a country park – for the first time.

Everyone cared about nature, everyone wanted to see it, talk about it.

The environment is for all ages, all stages of life.

I remember a greener childhood. . .

Day 27 – 30 Days Wild

Was chilling out in the garden, when I heard a Blackbird singing close & loud, it then got closer – so I filmed it πŸ˜†

Day 25 + 26 – 30 Days Wild

My new toy arrived, a 4K video-recording 20MP photo-taking Trail CAM! πŸ’–

Late in the afternoon I set it up in our new Wildlife Corner of the garden.

This morning I reviewed the footage that was recorded from yesterday afternoon, the evening & from this morning. I am over the moon with what the Trail CAM managed to capture! πŸ’š

Day 24 – 30 Days Wild

My kitchen was overran with Flying Ants & the non-flying ones 🐜 🐜 🐜 It was like a plague! I am not kidding.

So of course I had to document it. It was somewhat nightmarish! πŸ‘‡πŸ»

Day 23 – 30 Days Wild

I am delighted & amazed at what I am discovering in the garden lately. Today I was pottering about & I could hear a munching / crunching sound coming from the gate.

At first I thought it may have been a Wasp, but I couldn’t see it. Then after looking the gate up & down I noticed a wee Bee in a crevice! 🐝

A Fork-tailed Flower Bee (Anthophora furcata).

Day 12 – 30 Days Wild

It has been great for Birdsong lately, hasn’t it? Since lockdown I have heard some great birds from the back garden 🎢

To be honest, I am already familiar with what song belongs to which bird πŸ™‚

In my video I’ve labelled each birdsong / call πŸ‘‡πŸ»
