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…

RSPB Sticker Activity Book – Day 7 of #30DaysWild

Day 7 of #30DaysWild was an indoor day, we didn’t really go outside and explore.
