Last week saw us take a small break from Norfolk and travel back to Lincolnshire for a couple of days. We had a wonderful time relaxing and enjoying some of the wildlife Lincolnshire has to offer. We kicked things off with a visit to one of our favourite places, Woodside Falconry Park. We used to visit regularly, but with the move to Norfolk it must have been 5 years since our last trip. It has grown up a lot since the last time we were there, but it has not lost any of its
We had to take advantage of a lovely evening to take a stroll down to East Quay and sit for a while watching the world go by. Just sitting for half an hour is the best thing to take away any worries of the day. We also spotted 10 different types of birds mooching around with us without even trying. Some of our bird identification is quite good, others are slightly ropey, but we definitely saw Herring Gull, Black Headed Gull, Oystercatcher, Starling, Mallard, Wood Pigeon, Sw
It's been a little on the quiet side wild wise from us over the last few days - unless watching the brilliant Springwatch every evening counts. We think it counts! Little things like watching a sunset mean all the more when you are busy and think that there is just not time to fit in a little bit of wildlife. There is - and it is maybe not as difficult as we might think. And as a little added bonus - we also captured a bee on this shot going about it business! #garden #TheW
In honour of World Oceans Day, I thought I would take a stroll along the quay and down beach road this morning. The weather hasn't quite cheered up yet after Tuesday and Wednesday, so it was a little bit grey and blustery still, but it didn't stop me enjoying the scenery too much! We are very lucky to live somewhere so pretty, even when the weather is not at its best. Have you got favourite walks or places to visit that never fail to please? #WorldOceansDay #NaturalWorld #O
Well day six seemed to be a slight washout - it was very blustery and wet yesterday and it seemed to put pay to any (dry!) wildness available to us. While I have to admit to taking shelter and not venturing out any more than I really needed to, I did spot these crows in the morning. They seemed to be mobbing something, but there was nothing there that I could see. I will have to do a little bit of research to try and find out what they were up to! #30DaysWild #crows #birds
It has been a little bit on the busy side here, so our wild things have needed to be on the simple side for the time being. Small is certainly better than not doing anything though right? Day 3 saw us slow down and enjoy a glorious sunset (albeit from the comfort of the house!) This morning was another relaxing addition to our 30 Days Wild experience - we took 20 minutes tech free (so no pics!) and enjoyed our breakfast outside in the morning sunshine. It's amazing what suc
It will be a bit of a quieter few days for us on the wild front because we are back in the gallery until Tuesday, but we did manage to enjoy a little bit of the sunshine early on in the day which was much appreciated. The weather completely changed tack towards the end of the day though, and it has been raining fairly spectacularly since 3. We managed to dodge the worst of it on the (fast) walk home, so we can't complain - especially when the garden seems to need it so much.
The Wildlife Trusts run an initiative every June challenging you to do something wild everyday for 30 days. We thoroughly enjoyed trying to be a little more wild last year, so we thought we would join in again this year. So here goes - 30 days of wild start here. (We will try to blog everyday, but if we fall behind bear with us!) #30DaysWild Day 1: We spent a couple of hours in the garden this morning enjoying the beautiful sunshine and listening to the bees buzzing around
