30 Days Wild 2018 – Day Twenty-six


twt-30-days-wild_countdown_26Day 26: It’s back to work this week after a lovely break. One positive to working in Stockbridge Village is that there are a few social enterprises, such as Mab Lane Community Woodland and Woolfall Heath Meadowto enjoy.

I visited Woolfall Heath Meadow before work and spent a leisurely half an hour walking around the circular path through grassland.

It was a hot day, the thermometer reaching 24°C. The area was very quiet and I only saw two people walking their dogs. As I walked along the path, soaking up the rays of the sun, the chirp of grasshoppers sounded at my feet while willow warblers sung from the shelter of nearby trees.

The River Alt runs through the site and I sat overlooking a reedbed while watching as red admirals fluttered past. There were many meadow browns flying over the meadow but non stopped still enough for me to take a picture.

Of the flowers I spotted were, bindweed, thistles and field scabious. Bees enjoyed the ever popular brambles.

Do you have a community development like this one near you?

Thanks for reading, and stay wild!

  1. Looks like a nice little walk. Have seen quite a few Meadow Browns myself recently. Not sure about your cowslip. Looks like something else…though not sure what! X

  2. How wonderful to be able to visit a site like this before work! Lovely photos. I’ve struggled with 30 Days Wild – the heat this week and some very busy days have just wiped me out and my evenings have not been very productive so I’m well behind on blogging it!

    • Don’t worry Louise. Your wild posts are fab! I have found it hard with the heat too, but I have been luck with being able to plan a little ahead. Perhaps if you do it next year, life won’t be so hectic. x
