Day 5 – 30 Days Wild

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! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Gotta love Small Tortoiseshell Butterflies ๐Ÿฆ‹ ๐Ÿ’š

Day 4 – 30 Days Wild

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Day 3 – 30 Days Wild

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 ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿป

It is an Araniella sp. Also known as a Cucumber Spider ๐Ÿฅ’ (Thank you Emma Woolley)

From Googling, I suspect it’s an Araniella opisthographa ๐Ÿ•ท๏ธ But you can only determine that by having it under a microscope (cheers Rory Dimond & Luke Anderson) ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for visiting ๐Ÿ˜Š

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‹

In the early evening I went for a lovely walk with my Mom, around the Waseley Hills Country Park ๐Ÿž๏ธ โค๏ธ

You can make out the Malvern Hills AONB in the distance ๐Ÿ˜

Thanks for visiting! โ˜บ๏ธ

A nice easy one today ๐Ÿ™‚ ย I spent most of my day with my friend Laura at her Pet Store. ย I’ve mentioned the shops’ unkempt Wildlife Gardenย in a previous Blog post, it’s where I took todays’ “something blue”.

The modest Forget-me-not.

I’ve heard Forget-me-nots being described as “a British staple” – they do seem quintessentially British ๐Ÿ˜‰

The Sweet Peas are doing well in the CavyNoodle Wildlife Garden.
