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.
30 Days Wild Day 24 – Regents Canal
Today I had an appointment up at Finchley Road and so decided to walk down from there to join the Regents Canal heading towards Camden. I wanted to note the flowers, fruits and insects that I passed en route. I am enjoying walking slower and with eyes ‘open’ to noticing the wildlife as I walk.
Blackberries are beginning to fruit, and there were some ripe berries too. To my surprise, there were some ripe blackberries too.
After two weeks of hot weather, some of the flowers have gone on to seed.
And there is still plenty of colourful flowers on show.
There are also signs of the trees fruiting and bees collecting pollen.
