The eagle eyed amongst you might have noticed that World Migratory Bird Day has already been celebrated this year, so why are we going on about it again?
Well in fact, it’s celebrated twice during the year. Once when we welcome our Spring migrant species who come to our shores to breed, and again when we wave them goodbye and swap them for Arctic visitors who settle here for the winter period.
Can you believe we are halfway through June already? That means we are halfway through The Wildlife Trust’s 30 Days Wild challenge! Our whole team at The Wildlife Community HQ have been taking part but we wanted to share with you some of wild ways to inspire you to get involved for the last half of the month! Whether you’re a nature nerd or a nature newbie, it doesn’t matter. What matters is you get out there and notice the beautiful world around you....
I drove the 50 miles or so from the Lake District to Leighton Moss through waves of rain and wind. Once at the RSPB car park the rain was easing a little, easing but not stopped! Some of the five competition winners were already there and the others soon joined including Bev and Martin who have travelled with me before, many years ago, to Shetland.
