30 Days Wild 2021 Days 1 – 5

It’s June which means one thing – #30daywild 🌿 I’ve now been taking part in this initiative by The Wildlife Trust for 7 years!

Air Drying Clay & Flowers – Day 21 of # 30DaysWild

Day 21 of #30DaysWild was another crafty activity involving air drying clay and foliage. This was something Robin and I tried last year, but sadly as the clay dried it cracked.

Day 20 of #30DaysWild involved an unplanned visit to Walker Dam in Aberdeen. After what was just going to be a quick look, turned into a much longer explore of an area we didn’t know existed! If you are looking for somewhere new to explore I’d recommend it. Located just off of Springfield Road in…

A Nature Filled Day – Day 18 of #30DaysWild

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…
