Day 26 is really a second part to Day 25, coming from the first ever Local Nature Reserve, established in 1952. Aberlady Bay.
I struggle to believe we are already two-thirds of the way through 30 days Wild. I struggle even more to believe it’s nearly midway through 2017. For Day 20 we get two small but lovely moments to bookend the day.
There is a small wildflower meadow a minute outside my office, but I never go and walk in it. I’m always drawn to the lake. For Day 19, I changed that.
Days 17 and 18 were dominated by lots of garden work after several weeks without chance to keep on top of things. But there has been a constant presence in the garden.
30 Days Wild is about moments of wildness, be they small or large. I’ve had some pretty good ones over the three years this has run. But Day 17 presented one of my all-time best…
I set out on Day 16 to find Bee Orchids. All I found was bees. Lots of bees.
Last night there was an impressive moth on Red Valerian in the garden.
Back home to a couple of insect treats in the garden.
We were at Chatsworth House for the RHS Flower Show today. The actual show was a little underwhelming (too busy, too muddy) but there were some great wild highlights.
Because why should I be restricted to highlighting one moment a day, of a great moment presents itself?
