Welcome everyone to the first in a series of posts documenting my second time taking part in 30 Days Wild. It was set up by The Wildlife Trust, and encourages people to connect with nature each day for 30 days through a series of activities from simply taking a photo each day to scheduled voluntary activities, and the lovely Louise from Ramblings of a Roachling, even extended this to carry over into what became 366 Days Wild, which you can see on her blog here.
I'll try to split these up into weekly update posts but since we had a Bank Holiday on Monday and the 1st of June only started on the Wednesday I may have a few posts that run over, so apologies, and without further ado, here are my first 5 days!
I spotted this gorgeous cinnabar moth - my first ever sighting - while out for a lunchtime wander at work. A lot of these were taken on my phone hence some of the blurry shots, but I hope you can see those stunning red markings against the black wings.
Another lunchtime wander, where I decided to take my lunch outside and sit by the pond today. There are lots of these pretty yellow flag flowers blooming around the bank of this pond and I was lucky enough to see dragonflies flitting about over the surface of the water - a big change from sitting in the office and much appreciated!
This beautiful shrub with it's bright, yellow leaves is gorgeous when the sunlight finally shines on it and I couldn't pass up the importunity to take some photos today.
Some more time in the garden this morning and these lovely wild orange poppies have popped up overnight and with the sun shining it's a colourful addition to the garden!
With the lilac tree still in full bloom despite a few petals now falling away, it's still the first place I head to take a photo and I found this ant searching away on this petal today.
I hope you've all had a good week and if you're taking part in this as well, let me know so I cna visit your blogs and read your posts!
Have a great week ahead!
