Wildlife in August

A lot of birds are quieting down now, but Yellowhammers ๐Ÿค are continuing to sing away!  Plus this is another great month for seeing some beautiful Butterflies! ๐Ÿฆ‹

Wildlife in May

A few years ago I made a series of short videos which I put on YouTube, entitled Wildlife Monthly. ย 

Each month I produced 3 videos around a minute or more, detailing flora and fauna (mainly fauna) for you to look out for; be it in your garden, local park / reserve or further afield.

Below I have included the videos from my May edition(s).

I was at the Birmingham N.E.C yesterday and today – as a member of Press – to report on BBC Gardenersโ€™ World Live (but my focus was on the wild side of it).

I interviewed a number of interesting people (the interviews haven’t all been edited together yet) and in the video below, I have taken a selection of clips from the interviews; showing gardeners – from all walks of life –ย enthusing about nature:

The weather has been inclement again, and I was off to the N.E.C later as a member of Press, to report on BBC Gardeners’ World Live.ย  So I opted to write a wild poem; I was happy there was a break in between showers, because I was able to get out into my partner’s garden to recite my poem.ย 

Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

Day 12 – 30 Days Wild

“Follow a bumblebee” 

12/06/16

TWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_12After work, I decided to go for a nice stroll with a colleague and friend, Sophie.  We sauntered around the semi-rural outskirts of Northfield Town Centre (in South Birmingham).

Before we got to the location Sophie had in mind, literally just a few yards from where we work, we noticed beside the path (there is a grass verge) was a patch of Bird’s-foot-Trefoil.  I informed Sophie it is also know as Eggs and Bacon.  We saw some bees buzzing around it, so we observed and followed them from flower to flower.

I took a short video:

Thanks. ๐Ÿ
