Day 27 of 30 Days Wild – Strawberry moon

As it was so hot yesterday our dogs didn’t get their last walk until quite late.

It was perfect out in the field, to walk around while the moon rose up from behind the wood.

We could hear the Little owls gently calling over on the farm and the Blackbirds and thrushes singing until well after sunset.

The full moon in June has many names depending on different traditions.

Strawberry moon, Hawthorn moon, Moon of horses, Rose moon, Flower moon, but I think my favourite is Honey moon after all the bees around during June.

As the sky turned darker Saturn became visible, although not easy to take photos of.
