Day 18 of 30 Days Wild – Evening walk

I’m writing this today as by the time I got back from the evening walk it was too late to write it last night, plus I’m spending quite a bit of time revising for end of year exams.

I’m really luck to have some fantastic wide open spaces within walking distance of my house and this is one of them.

In the Winter, Spring and Autumn it is easy to find plenty of mammals such as foxes, deers and hare, as well as numerous birds, but this time of year with so much growth it is much harder, so it is nice to spend some time looking at what creatures are taking advantage of all the vegetation.

On a patch of nettles I found at least 50 Peacock butterfly caterpillars.
