Day 29 and 30 #30DaysWild: Peregrines, a park and poo

TWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_29Mummy had a play date all of her own on Wednesday with two of Willow’s godmothers so day 29 of #30DaysWild was going to be brought to me from my friend’s garden.

It, of course, was raining.

We did manage a quick mini tour of her own patch of green in between downpours though and were very impressed with her fruit and vegetable as well as flower growing skills.  Hopefully she’ll save us some strawberries from her next crop.

And my other friend also reminded me of the peregrines that nest at Lincoln Cathedral.  Lincoln RSPB volunteers are currently holding the 10th annual watchpoint on weekends until July 31st.  Another stunning sight our city provides.

 

TWT 30 Days Wild_countdown_30Sun!  Quick!  To the park!

Lincoln’s city park the Arboretum was originally designed by Edward Milner between 1870 and 1872 and had £3 million worth of restoration work carried out in 2003.  It has achieved green flag status.

And it’s popular with the squirrels and ducks.  And, as a particular fan of mazes, Luke too.

Large-Nature-Lodge-AWe also had the chance to pop in to Aldi earlier in the day to pick up a Nature Lodge insect house we’d learnt were on sale via the #30DaysWild Facebook group.

And we littlemolefinished the day with a reading of The Story of the Little Mole who knew it was none of his business.  Described as “A scatological masterpiece”, what better way is there to interest your children in nature than through the power of poo!
