Wildlife in March

Despite Snowmageddon, the Beast from the East and Storm Emma, some animals will still be going about their business as usual, if you can believe it!  The videos below are of what you may see if you venture out, if not, then you got to enjoy these species in detail in the comfort of your home, and maybe would have learnt a thing or two about them as well!

Wildlife in September and October

Nature_SeptandOct_Collage

Below are some videos from my past, showcasing nature to be seen in September and in October. πŸ’š  I am actually quite pleased with my voice-over work from-back-in 2011!  You might be happy to know, it is a skill which I’ve now honed.  πŸ˜‰

September (2011) 

October (2011) 

Apologies for the inaccuracies in the Fungi video; pronunciation of hallucinogenic and apparently you can eat  Amethyst Deceivers – but it is better to be safe than sorry!  (No matter how good a recipe sounds!)  πŸ˜†

Wildlife in August

A lot of birds are quieting down now, but Yellowhammers 🐀 are continuing to sing away!  Plus this is another great month for seeing some beautiful Butterflies! πŸ¦‹

Wildlife in July

Summer is a great time to see Butterflies, thanks to Buddleja growing just about anywhere, you can see these beautiful creatures in urban places as well as suburban and rural.

Below are three short videos acting as a guide to the Butterflies of High Summer:

BBC Gardeners’ World Live 2017

Last year I did separate videos of my interviews with the at gardening celebs / presenters and garden designers.

This year I thought it would be better to edit the interviews etc of the show, into one video and that’s exactly what I’ve done in the short video below:

Wildlife in May

A few years ago I made a series of short videos which were featured on the Reader’s Digest Magazine website, entitled Wildlife Monthly.  

Each month I produced 3 videos around a minute or more, detailing flora and fauna (mainly fauna) for you to look out for; be it in your garden, local park / reserve or further afield.

Below I have included the videos from my May edition(s).

Wind-back Wednesday, to June 2016

I think ‘Wind-back Wednesday’ should be more of a trend on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and of course, WordPress.Β  It’ll be for those that cannot wait until Thursday (for Throwback Thursday)Β  #WindbackWednesday orΒ  #WBWΒ  πŸ˜‰

Anyway…Β  I realised I hadn’t updated my blog in a while and I didn’t share my completed videos of my reporting at BBC Gardener’s World back in June, all of which I have included in this post.
