Extracurricular : Bird rescuing.

Today, as normal, I walked out from school but today I noticed a small bird had been blown into the road with cars all around. I attempted to run out and get the small bird with the help of another student. Once it had been taken out from the road it was left underneath a tree. I didn’t want to leave the bird because it was only young, there are a lot of corvids in the area, it couldn’t fly and there was no sight of a parent, nest or anywhere that the nest could of been. After about an hour of me and my friend waiting and watching I rung a local wildlife rescue who told me to take it to them. We managed to get it into a box without stressing it out anymore and it to the rescue. The lady at the rescue said he/she should be fine which was great to hear!

Here are some photos of the young goldfinch.

Garden beauty galore!

Yesterday I visited Elford Hall Garden with my local Wildlife Trust Group (The Lichfield Wildlife Trust). Firstly we were given an introduction about the place then we went on a walk round. I managed to get lots of lovely photos of the beautiful flowers, sights and wildlife here. The sight was nothing less then a wildlife haven, with ancient trees, bug hotels, a wide variety of plants, the River Tame which goes past and some woodland areas. It was a wonderful place to walk around and I’m looking forward to going again. For more information about Elford Hall Garden here’s the website – http://www.elfordhallgarden.org.uk/

Here are some photos that I took.
