Here is a collection of interesting links (and a little self promotion) that I have come across in the past month or so that I thought you dear readers might find to be of interest:
It’s nearly my favourite time of the year, the beginning of summer. Bursts of heavy greenery crowding the trees and verges. Birds native and migratory frolicking and singing. Bees and butterflies adding to the harmony. Breathing in the scented air (then coughing from the ravages of hayfever). Throwing on shorts, t-shirt and sunglasses with no further thought. Going outdoors to enjoy the smallest hints of sun while it lasts. Flashes of excitement as summer thunder rings out amongst iron grey clouds. Lying on the grass within the embrace of heat whilst reading a book. Everyone smiling and relaxed. The lingering smell of barbecues. Exploring new places. In summer I am in my element.
It also marks the beginning of the Wildlife Trusts’ 30 Days Wild challenge!
