#30DaysWild – Day 16 – Bradgate Park wild weekend

As it was Bradgate Park’s Wild Weekend, I thought I would pop along and see what was going on. I have been the last few years and have really enjoyed myself and this year was not an exception. The stands of all the wildlife and conservation organisations were all very interesting, the people manning them were clearly all very passionate. I will look forward to next year’s event!

The walk to and from the event was full of wildlife – cheeky jackdaws, fuzzy little ducklings, pollen covered bees, noisy grasshoppers and of course the park’s resident deer.

A thoroughly pleasant day and a very welcome break from the rain!

#30DaysWild – Day 16 – Bradgate Park, Leicester

This weekend was Bradgate Park’s Wildlife Weekend, I attended last year and had a fantastic time so I thought I would pop by again this year.

The event was bigger than last year, with more stalls and more local groups wanting to share their passion with anyone who showed interest. It was really rather fun and fascinating. I now have a lot of literature to read through too!

I did need a warm up before heading back, so I stopped for a cuppa. I had forgotten my travel mug so I was happy to see that the disposable cup I was given is 100% compostable, I may even use it to grow some micro-greens!

Taking a long walk back to the car park, I took the time to enjoy the beautiful open landscape and the resident wildlife. Seeing the deer that inhabit the park is always a thrill!
