As I mentioned in my last blog post – a few years ago I made a series of short videos which I put on YouTube, entitled Wildlife Monthly. What I didn’t mention, is that they were featured by the Reader’s Digest Magazine website.
Each video is around a minute or more, detailing flora and fauna (mainly fauna) for you to look out for; below I have included one video from my June 2012 edition and three from my 2011 June edition – each with a coastal theme.
Thanks for visiting 🙂
A few years ago I made a series of short videos which I put on YouTube, entitled Wildlife Monthly.
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).

Enthuse About Nature
I was at the Birmingham N.E.C yesterday and today – as a member of Press – to report on BBC Gardeners’ 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 – enthusing about nature:

“Write a wild poem”
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. 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.
“Tweet for the wild”
Today I tweeted a link to the video below – which I made last year – about my favourite local patch and why it matters to me:
The poem I mentioned in the video: Ode to a Secret River
“Dance in a downpour”
To the exact day; like last year – I danced in the rain! This time, I changed the lyrics to a popular song to accompany this particular Act of Wildness. 😉

“Follow a bumblebee”
After 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:
