In honour of National Insect Week I went out bug hunting today, equipped with my pooter!
One of my favourite jobs at work was my first duty of today, an invertebrate survey in the Nature Reserve! The place is so beautiful and teeming with life! Everywhere I looked there was something to see!
Invert survey or a bug hunt, looking for those little gorgeous creatures is always rewarding!
Here is the last 10 days of my 30 Days Wild!
Day 21 – Who knew that an old dry log would be so interesting!
Day 22 – Today I spent time watching a Goldfinch investigating the bark of a tree!
Day 23 – Popped by my local Kestrel nest … I’m not sure who was watching who today!
Day 24 – I was given the choice between doing the books or counting the bugs!
Day 25 – Stuck in traffic? I decided to do a long distance plant survey! I counted 19 different species between two junctions!
Day 26 – Today I rescued a bee from the office, two beetles from the classrooms and a bush cricket from butterfly house!
Day 27 – Paused to admire this beautiful fungus growing at the base of dead tree!
Day 28 – Today I enjoyed blue skies, green fields and wild views along the Severn Valley Railway!
Day 29 – I got to enjoy the flutterings of these stunning Scarlet Tigers!
Day 30 – On the last wild day of June, I found this old tractor being reclaimed by the wild!
I have really enjoyed doing 30 Days Wild. Being with the wild is something I naturally do every day, so I will be staying wild! I hope that you all will be too!
Here is the next 10 days of my 30 Days Wild!
Day 11 – Today I spent an hour staring at a stone wall! – This has been my favourite day so far!
Day 20 – Walking through a covered walk way at work, I had two Swallows fly around my head. I paused to watch them and then I noticed this nest in a dark corner! I took one (poor quality) photo before leaving the new family in peace!
