As I had an event to attend at Burnby Hall, I had a quick wander round the gardens to see what wild moments may be round the corner. Advertisements
With the 2nd ever Yorkshire Puffin Festival coming up on the 15th and 16th of June, I went out to Flamborough to see how things were.
With a nine hour journey on the cards, I thought I’d at least be able to spend it train birding, always a favourite pastime of mine.
A three hour ferry journey from the Isles of Scilly back to the mainland offered the opportunity to see what wildlife was about.
As it was a glorious evening, I decided to go have a couple of hours wandering round Wheldrake Ings. I hoped I might get lucky and spot a barn owl. We’ll see how that worked out later.

We’ve had a noisy garden invasion recently as the first set of starling chicks have tipped out into the garden. They give nobody, certainly not us or their parents, a moment’s peace as they are constantly crying for more food.
Yes, 30 Days Wild has come round again. June seems to have slightly snuck up on me, hence no build-up to it this year. But I’ll be aiming once again for daily posts right through the month.
I didn’t want it to happen but time, weather and other things have beaten me. So we end not with a bang, but with a whimper…
There’s an unfortunate sense of the month petering out at the moment with the weather minimising chances for anything special to close it out.
With the rain continuing to fall I was wondering what I could write about today. Surely not another wildfowl photo?
