Day 6 – 30 Days Wild

It’s a short one today.  I started work at 4pm and wanted to catch up on Springwatch during the day, so I decided that would be my task for Day 6.

I’m loving the natural-nest-site camera on the Barn Owls – it’s brilliant we can watch their goings on inside an old Oak Tree!  The Stickleback footage is amazing, such clear crisp stunning images of behaviour we wouldn’t normally know is going on beneath the surface!  I thought it was a real privilege that the BBC got to film the Beaver analysis and release, I personally like that we have them back in the UK and on a river called Otter! 😛

I also liked it when Michaela got to paddle around the reeds and witnessed the various Warblers and saw inside a Bearded Tit nest.  And there was that film featuring the talented cameraman with dyslexia, that was inspired to film Wildlife from the Ladybird books illustrator (apologies – I have forgot certain names, I may add them later).

Day 3 – 30 Days Wild


I decided on something quick, simple and easy today!

I would be at work for a good chunk of the day, so I needed to do something where I could easily relax afterwards…  Doing the previous challenges – which, don’t get me wrong, I had tons of fun doing!  It’s just; I didn’t quite get time to relax once I was done.  I had a video to edit together, a blog to write and then attempt to get them online (and shared via Social Media) before the day was up!

(Time has flown sorting everything out for this blog, etc…)

I only get a 20 minute lunch-break on Wednesdays (due to the hours I do) – I wanted to make it a wild one!  But I couldn’t risk going to a local park or something and then not get back in time…  So, I improvised!  And decided to make it somewhat wild by watching the BBC Springwatch Webcams!  Via the BBC Red Button channel.  There were three other people in the room, I don’t think they realised what I had put on, aha! 😀

I sat stuffing my face with a create-your-own cheesy garlic pepperoni pizza from Sainsbury’s (where I work) Pizza Counter 😛  Watching a Cetti’s Warbler attend it’s chicks!  It’s pretty amazing what we can do nowadays, thanks to technology!  It was really enjoyable, eating my food whilst the chicks got theirs and intern having their faecal-sacks disposed of 😀
