Megan (in western Scotland) Another day, another adventure! We headed even further west today, all the way out to Ardnamurchan Point. We also stopped off a couple of times on the way there and back – seeing juvenile buzzards, an awesome moth, a herd of Red Deer, numerous birds including Twite, Whinchat, Stonechat […]

Megan and Matt Go Wild Day 22

Welcome to our joint-blogging series for the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild Challenge – you can read more about the campaign and ourselves in our introduction page. Matt (in western Scotland) f every day could be like today, life would be perfect, which really shows the value of going wild. By 5am I was looking for otters. And as I’ve just been typing we’ve all dashed outside to see an otter at 9pm at night. I’m now back at the […]

Megan and Matt Go Wild Day 19

Welcome to our joint-blogging series for the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild Challenge – you can read more about the campaign and ourselves in our introduction page. Matt (in Worcestershire) Today was the first day of my holiday. But much of it has been spent working in front of a laptop. That’s because today is Rainforest: Live day – a project I set up and ran today for the second year in a row. Organisations across the world have been […]

Megan and Matt Go Wild Day 18

Welcome to our joint-blogging series for the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild Challenge – you can read more about the campaign and ourselves in our introduction page. Megan (in some beautiful Dorset meadows) I had a lovely time at Lorton Meadows today with a class from one of the local schools. We went pond dipping (where we admired the swooping acrobatics of a dragonfly), into the woods (great fun doing some bark rubbing and tree identification) and on a short […]

Matt (in London) Wild In Westminster Between my four meetings in westminster today i went and sat in victoria tower gardens next to the palace of westminster and made a few calls. Watching the river flow past I spotted a peregrine flying west over the south bank. There are few more poignant reminders […]

Megan and Matt Go Wild Day 11

Welcome to our joint-blogging series for the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild Challenge – you can read more about the campaign and ourselves in our introduction page. Megan (in coastal Dorset) It was another office day for me – spending much of the time glued to my laptop preparing for events and the like. I could hear the leaves rustling outside, and a Chiffchaff that was determined to make sure that everyone knew he was present in the area. I […]

Megan and Matt Go Wild Day 10

Welcome to our joint-blogging series for the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild Challenge – you can read more about the campaign and ourselves in our introduction page. Matt (in Cambridge/Sandy) Liftshare On a day spent entirely at my desk, I have to get my wildlife where I can. Most days, that’s during my regular carpool lift to work. Not only does my 35 minute lift to work give me a chance to spot swallows, kestrels, buzzards and occasionally red kites […]

Megan and Matt Go Wild Day 9

Welcome to our joint-blogging series for the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild Challenge – you can read more about the campaign and ourselves in our introduction page. Megan (in coastal Dorset) Today’s 30 Days Wild Theme was appreciating meadows. These wonderful habitats are scarce indeed, but are vitally important for our wildlife! After a pond dipping session with a local school group (plenty of newts, dragonfly nymphs and snails!), we headed over to the meadow to look for minibeasts (aka […]

Megan and Matt Go Wild Day 8

Welcome to our joint-blogging series for the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild Challenge – you can read more about the campaign and ourselves in our introduction page. (Matt, in Cambridge/Sandy) Wild to work In the Spring and Summer I forgo a 12 minute bike ride to where I get picked up for work and instead opt for the 40 minute saunter through the small millennium woodland and across the fields behind my cottage. Whilst there isn’t anything spectacular I begin […]

Megan and Matt Go Wild Day 7

Welcome to our joint-blogging series for the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild Challenge – you can read more about the campaign and ourselves in our introduction page. (Megan, mid-Wales) Phew, now I can breathe a sigh of relief! Today was the day for my bioblitz, an event that had originally been thought of back when I was still working for Radnorshire Wildlife Trust, and I had been anxiously worrying about ever since. Organised by myself, group of us when over […]
