#30DaysWild – Day 28 – Finding wildlife in a cemetery

Cemeteries are interesting places to walk – carefully and ornately carved gravestones, the names of loved ones who have passed, and of course the wildlife that have chosen to live there.

I occasionally visit an inner city cemetery, just to see what life I might find. Today my stroll took me through an old but large cemetery, some of it very well kept, other places had been left untended and become a home to birds and insects.

I watched butterflies, bees and hoverflies on wildflowers and bramble. I heard woodpeckers, bullfinch, wrens and blackbirds singing. I admired the colours of the many wildflowers that decorated the graves alongside the planted roses and placed bouquets.

Cemeteries are a special habitat, so diverse with wildlife, a little piece of urban wild.
