It’s gone so fast, June has swept through with blazing sunshine and blasts of stormy gales! Despite the mixed weather, last month we joined the thousands of people across the country taking part in The Wildlife Trusts’ 30 days wild campaign that aimed to get people outside and engaging with nature every day in June.
Alongside our daily dog walks, we’ve tried to take more time to actively seek out wildlife and try new outdoor activities, but to keep it up every day has been a challenge!! However, making more of an effort to seek out local wild places has been really rewarding, from finding magical mini-beasts in the garden, to comparing home-grown courgettes and sharing our pictures through Ulster Wildlife's instagram! Now that the month is over, I thought this might be a good time to reflect on some of the best wild encounters of living #30DaysWild

Following this year’s efforts, we’ve decided to try and keep the momentum of #30dayswild rolling, whether taking inspiration to explore new wild places or making time to have a tea break in the garden, it seems that spending time outside engaging with nature is always time well spent!
