#30DaysWild day 5 – Burbage Common

On the way back from the supermarket, I decided to pop to my favourite wild patch – Burbage Common.

I love it there, it’s always full of bird life … except this time. It was quiet, too quiet. I stood looking up and down the small road that leads to the car park wondering what had happened, when a Sparrowhawk swept across the road.

A few short minutes later, the birds began to sing again knowing the danger of a predator had passed. The first bird to pop down into sight was beautiful Jay. Wood pigeons appeared and then 3 Crows few by, a cheeky Robin and a foraging Chaffinch where next. A hungry squirrel appeared and spent some time munching through a pile of mealworms that had been left out for the wildlife.

Definitely worth the detour!

Day 7 #30DaysWild

I have had two wild moments today, the first was just after midnight. I stepped into my garden to hear the chobble of a hedgehog munching mealworms in its little hide!

I also took a stroll around my new favourite local wild patch, Burbage Common. I only discovered this place in March but I’ve already seen so many changes in those few months. I was also chuffed to spot a Blue Tit nest!
