For a couple of weeks, since the bottom part of the flowerbed was dug over, I have observed House Sparrows having sand / dust baths & I thought to myself, I must get footage of this!
My attempts failed, at first, because they either didn’t turn up or I had just missed them, or it was raining 😅
However, today I thought I would give it another go and within about 5 minutes into recording they showed up & I got footage! 👇🏻
I plan on getting closer & better footage very soon!
Thanks for visiting ☺️
After a lovely walk around my local wood & a wee heritage site, I got back to find a beautiful Butterfly basking in the sun, in the garden, & I managed get some lovely footage of it! 😊
Gotta love Small Tortoiseshell Butterflies 🦋 💚
Thanks for visiting! 🌸
On Monday, whilst walking passed some Foxgloves with my Mom up the Waseley Hills Country Park, I remembered that we had some seeds at the back of one of the kitchen cupboards 😉
Digitalis purpurea – Waseley Hills Country Park
Today that’s exactly what I did! 💮
Thanks for visiting 🙂
Today I awoke to the sound of rain, so of course there was only one thing for me to do…
I also got an ID for the
Spider from yesterday 👇🏻
It is an Araniella sp. Also known as a Cucumber Spider 🥒 (Thank you Emma Woolley)
From Googling, I suspect it’s an Araniella opisthographa 🕷️ But you can only determine that by having it under a microscope (cheers Rory Dimond & Luke Anderson) 🙂
Thanks for visiting 😊
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 💚 🐦 🎶 (Then went back to sleep 😆).
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! 😀 🦋
In the early evening I went for a lovely walk with my Mom, around the Waseley Hills Country Park 🏞️ ❤️
You can make out the Malvern Hills AONB in the distance 😍
Thanks for visiting! ☺️
This month I’ve decided to focus on some wildlife that takes a backseat, and is often overlooked – Reptiles and Amphibians! 🐍 🐸
ARG UK have teamed up with
Amphibian and Reptile Conservation; to bring us a Record Pool of our water loving and sun loving friends! In the video below I interview Underwater Cameraman, Jack Perks – to give us some tips and the lowdown on this nationwide survey.

“Snap a picture of something blue”
A nice easy one today 🙂 I spent most of my day with my friend Laura at her Pet Store. I’ve mentioned the shops’ unkempt
Wildlife Garden in a previous Blog post, it’s where I took todays’ “something blue”.
The modest Forget-me-not.
Forget-me-nots being described as “a British staple” – they do seem quintessentially British 😉
The Sweet Peas are doing well in the CavyNoodle Wildlife Garden.
