Day 1 - spiders in the garden
field guide to British Spiders (I had it pre-ordered for ages!). It is really very good, I recommend it. The other is a macro attachment for the camera, a Raynox 150 adapter. It clips onto the front of the camera lens. Takes a bit of getting used to but you can get some half-decent pictures for considerably less than a dedicated macro lens would cost. So the combination of these two things meant that some spider photography was top of the list for #30DaysWild! If you are on facebook I would also recommend looking at the British Spider Identification group, super helpful!
Day 2 - bats!
Day 3 - nature journalling
This is what I really enjoy doing - sitting in the sunshine, drawing :-) The pyrocantha shrub in the corner of the garden is covered in blossom at the moment and is also covered with insects...
Day 4 - fungi after rain
These tiny fungi appeared at the edge of the lawn near the log pile after some thundery rain. Unidentified as yet...
Day 5 - elderflowers and a pheasant
Rain and wind forecast for today, and it's quite a bit cooler than it has been too. I collected some elderflowers to make elderflower cordial. The pheasant has been a regular visitor for a few weeks, along with two hen pheasants.
On to the rest of #30DaysWild!
