30 Days Wild 2018 – Day Six.


download (2)Day 6: This Wednesday I decided to go in search of worms in the yarden. I looked under plant pots and piles of leaf litter. As it’s been dry for some time here in the NW of England I was not very successful in my search. I should have waited until it rained!

All I found was lots of tigers! Tiger Worms, and a very energetic centipede that I couldn’t photograph, (it was that fast!)

Tiger Worms are litter dwellers and are often found in compost heaps. They consume dead plant material and their manure fertilises the soil. They are also great aerators of soil.

So, even though my search wasn’t that successful I discovered I had tigers in the yarden. 🙂

Thanks for reading, and stay wild!
