My photograph of the month for May and June

Here are my photos for May and June. It’s a little late but June has been quite a busy month for many reasons!

May

On a short walk round my local patch, I found this lovely looking beetle resting on a fence. I was quite taken with it so it had to be my photo for May!

June

Some of you who have followed my 30 Days Wild will have already seen this photo but you have to admit it was a rather lovely sight to see. A cygnet resting on its mother’s back!

#30DaysWild day 1 – exploring somewhere new!

 

For my first day of 30 Days Wild I decided to explore somewhere new. I chose Bradgate Park as I had heard many great things about it.

A bright sunny day made the visit all the more delightful! There were lots of families enjoying the warmth and outdoors which was wonderful to see

The whole visit was very ‘wild’, but if I had to pick just one moment it was the few minutes I spent sat on the grass watching some of the park’s many deer grazing peacefully.

A beautiful Brown Hare

After a couple of sodden days of rain, it was glorious to see the sun yesterday. A gorgeous day to cycle home. What was even more special was that I managed to spot a beautiful brown hare in a farmer’s field. This is the closet I’ve ever seen a hare so I was thrilled! Worth all that pedaling!

My photograph of the month for April

Choosing this month’s photograph was a tough one! All the new life has exploded everywhere!

Flowers, birds and insects have been brought forth by the promise of the sun’s warmth. I have spent a lot of time admiring the gorgeous yellow glows of dandelions that have filled the local grass verges. Bringing colour for us and much needed pollen and nectar to our early insect risers! I have seen many bees like this one, revelling in the pollen provisions of these precious golden blooms.

Having missed last month’s blog, I am posting two photos to make up for my absence.

February’s photo is of a House Sparrow taking flight.

My photograph from January

January was not only a chilly month, but also full of cheeky and charming Robins! This little beauty landed right in the middle of my path so I stopped to say hello!

My photograph from November and December!

My monthly blog has been a little haphazard this year, as proved by the fact I’m posting November and December’s photos together this month! But I do find this a fun exercise and maybe it is something I’ll carry through into 2017. However until then I’ll leave you with my last two photos for 2016 and wish you all HAPPY NEW YEAR!

My Big Butterfly Count 2016

I take part in the Big Butterfly Count every year. It’s great fun to do and I would encourage anyone to do it!

Though I’ve now been in the Market Bosworth area for a year now, this is the first opportunity do the Big Count here.

As always, I enjoyed my count. The chosen place was my local patch, it is so full of life! In the 15 minutes of doing the survey, not only did I see 9 different species of butterfly, but I also saw Dragonflies, Damselflies, Bees, Snails, Birds and, Black and Yellow Longhorn beetle. I even had a frog jump over my foot!

If you want to take part, you can find out more at The Big Butterfly Count website here.
