If you read my last post (here) or follow me on my Cup of Toast social media accounts (or both!) then you’ll know that this year we are excited to be taking part in #30dayswild. A full post will follow later in the month, but in the meantime I thought that it would be nice to publish a weekly round up of my photographs and our adventures.

I am posting once a day on this topic on social media, but the reality is that we are getting out more than that. So, without further ado, here are the photographs that you may have seen, along with some you won’t have.

Day One:

Checking in on our windowsill strawberry plants and finding real fossils in clay blocks and thinking about what fossils are and why they might be important.

Day Two:

Finding spider webs in the grass and thinking about where different spiders might make their webs and what they use them for.

Day Three:

Moving snails away from our skip so that they don’t get squashed by rubble, and feeding the local ducks and swans lettuce and peas.

Day Four:

Walking in woodland, listening to the birds singing and the wind rustling the leaves.

Day Five:

Buying supplies for our wild birds, and filling up the bird table. We then observed our garden visitors from inside.

Day Six:

Peeking into the hedge at the end of our garden and spotting the tree bees hard at work.

Day Seven:

Another day another peaceful walk. The Loud One loved observing the different colours around him. Back at home we discovered an ants’ nest and quietly watched them relocate before clearing any more concrete!

Are you taking part in the #30dayswild challenge? I’d love to hear about what you’ve been up to!
