The Wildlife Trusts in the UK has challenged people to go wild throughout June this year. So for the month of June, I am blogging each day about a random act of wildness!
Travelling and wildlife go together. Landscapes, cityscapes and skyscapes all hold an abundance of wildlife to enjoy. We can often miss the little pockets of wildlife that are all around us, and we pass by every day. So I am enjoying this challenge as a way to stay more present to my surroundings and to notice what wildlife already forms part of my daily life.
There are around 160 species of grass that are either indigenous or naturalised in the UK. Grasses are the largest family of flowering plants. They are often overlooked.
So today I went for a walk in Regent’s Park and took some photographs of some of the grass (and I admit then some of these may be sedges or rushes – I am not an expert at identifying grass).
