Day 4 – 30 Days Wild, discovery

As soon as I got home after this mornings English Language GCSE paper, I went for a walk to get some fresh air and clear my head before sitting down to revise for tomorrows Geography paper.

Just to the edge of the footpath I noticed a Bee orchid.

I’ve never seen them in this place before, I normal go to see them in another village each June.

An old name for a Bee Orchid is ‘Dumble dor’

    • Hi Abi, It was great to meet you all today. I was very impressed by all your knowledge.
      My first tip would be to look our for wildlife in your garden, even creatures such as ladybirds have fascinating lives if you watch them close enough.
      Doing 30 Days Wild is a great way of reminding yourself to do a little ‘wild’ something every day even if it just something like walking somewhere rather than going in the car or eating a meal in the garden.
      Good luck and Stay Wild
