30 Days Wild – Monkwood Nature Reserve, Worcestershire

30 Days Wild is now fully underway and even though I’m not taking photographs of my progress every day, I did manage to get out with my camera last weekend.

With it being another sunny Sunday, I headed over to the Monkwood Nature Reserve to see if any butterflies were fluttering about. Monkwood is a beautiful reserve with ponds, meadows and woodland, which is habitat to many species of fauna and flora. I had a wonderful few hours wandering around and saw Brimstone, Large White, Speckled Wood and Painted Lady Butterflies, Common Blue and Large Red Damselflies, Broad-bodied Chasers, Great Tits, Grey Squirrels, Tree Creepers and even a Great Spotted Woodpecker feeding it’s young – apologies that the photo isn’t the best, it was too far away for my lens!

Along with the walk, I have been trying to be in and amongst nature as often as I can and will continue to do so for the rest of June. For those that don’t know, 30 Days Wild has it a project thought up by The Wildlife Trusts and is there to inspire people to get more connected with the natural world that surrounds us. It’s great fun to do and it’s free – what more can you want!
