An hour of talking wildlife

At the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas I am a junior leader for the Wildlife Watch group and a few months back I was asked to give a short talk as part of one of the sessions. When I did my talk, yesterday, it went very well and I thoroughly enjoyed giving the talk as they were a great audience. My talk was all about my wildlife experiences from 2014.

The group meets once a month on a Saturday afternoon and they do a whole array of different activities from pond dipping to mammal trapping. The Arboretum is teaming with wildlife and before my talk I took a short 30 minute walk around, here’s some photos that I got.

From London conference rooms to parks – all about nature

Last Tuesday wasn’t like my normal Tuesday. Instead of a day working hard at school I was on the 7:56 train to London. I was off to London as I was going to be attending a follow up conference about an exciting project called Our Environment Our Future, which you can read more about by clicking here. The conference went very well and I thoroughly enjoyed myself as it was a great experience.

Along with this just before we got the train back home we had a few hours to have a look around some of the parks. I was amazed by how much wildlife is in the middle of such an urban area, it was fantastic! I was especially surprised by how close we could get to the herons in Regent’s Park. Here are some photos from the day.
