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:

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:

Day 10 – 30 Days Wild

“Watch a wild webcam”ย 

10/06/16

TWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_10Today I was at work 9AM-5PM, so I needed another easy Random Act of Wildness, so I arrived at work with enough time to get breakfast and watch the Springwatch Webcam(s) in the staff canteen.

After I was done watching, I left the channel on, so somebody would find a live-stream of wildlife at work, and would maybe watch, enjoy and become a fan of Springwatch/become more interested in nature, if they’re not already! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Wildlife Gardening

I thought it would be a good idea to combine a 30 Days Wild activity, with the BBC’s Do Something Great campaign!  My parents needed some Broom planting, so I used this opportunity to my advantage – for a quick video:

Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚
