A Nature Filled Day – Day 18 of #30DaysWild

Day 18 of #30DaysWild involved a few things including a discovery of a pretty impressive fungus! Today I decided it would be a good day to go and add one of Robin’s rocks to the big rock snake in our local community. After painting rocks for day 15 they were now all sealed ready to…

An Urban Wildflower Meadow – Day 17 of #30DaysWild

Day 17 of #30dayswild saw us explore an urban wildflower meadow. I’ve featured this on #30dayswild in previous years, but it’s so pretty I couldn’t help going back. Every year the same area is left to grow and go wild at the BP headquarters in Dyce. I drive past it most days (or would before…

Getting Artsy with Rocks – Day 15 of #30DaysWild

Day 15 of #30DaysWild saw us decorating rocks! This popular activity has really boomed since lockdown with many people painting rocks with motivational messages. These have been placed at popular walking spots up and down the country. In our local area we have been finding them down by the River Don during our frequent walks….

A Misty Walk By Donmouth, Aberdeen – Day 14 of #30DaysWild

Day 14 of #30DaysWild was a little bit of a soggy and misty walk at Donmouth, Aberdeen. What a contrast in weather we have had in the last few weeks! Today was a very misty day but it didn’t stop us from doing something wild. As soon as you walked into the reserve the air…

Johnston Gardens, Aberdeen – Day 13 of #30DaysWild

Day 13 of #30DaysWild involved a trip to Johnston Gardens in Aberdeen. These gardens are a jewel in the middle of the City and adored by instagrammers, photographers and nature lovers. Johnston Gardens takes you on a journey of mystery and intrigue. The plants, trees and rockeries create a little haven different to any other…

Visiting Hazlehead Park – Day 12 of #30DaysWild

Day 12 of #30DaysWild was a trip to Hazlehead Park in Aberdeen. It’s been a while since we have been (not since lockdown) so it was a nice change in scenery. We even managed to get a coffee from a kiosk there too! Not long after we arrived we saw two girls from Robin’s nursery…

An Evening Stroll along the River Don – Day 11 of #30DaysWild

Day 11 of #30DaysWild is a snapshot of what I encountered during my walk along the River Don in the evening. This walk was different as I was alone. Most walks in lockdown have been a family trip out and I’ve only been out twice to walk myself. Alone time during lockdown has been a…

Pressing Flowers Using an Iron – Day 10 of #30DaysWild

Day 10 of #30DaysWild saw me pressing some flowers and leaves I had gathered both from the garden and out on a walk. I’ve certainly not done this in a very long time so I turned to Google for some advice, where I found out you could not only press flowers the old fashioned way…

Meet the Woolly Bear Caterpillar – Day 9 of #30DaysWild

Day 9 of #30DaysWild was all thanks to spotting a caterpillar whilst Robin and Dada were on a walk. This hairy wriggly thing can really cover some ground quickly! Watch Robin tell Dada about what happens to the caterpillar in the video below. I have to say when I was working and got sent that…

Avocado Trees & Narwhal Sand Art – Day 8 of #30DaysWild

Day 8 of #30DaysWild was another day for indoor activities. Today we picked two smaller projects to get involved in. Activity 1 – Planting an Avocado Stone 🥑 This activity was included in our Mud and Bloom box but it’s easy enough to do yourself. All you need is 🥑 – an avocado, a glass…

RSPB Sticker Activity Book – Day 7 of #30DaysWild

Day 7 of #30DaysWild was an indoor day, we didn’t really go outside and explore. Robin was gifted the RSPB ‘My First Birds and Wildlife’ book for his birthday, which back then I thought would be perfect to feature in 30 Days Wild. This book is perfect for toddlers and a nice introduction to wildlife….
