30 Days Wild 2016- In Conclusion #StayWild

So, 30 Days Wild is over for another year, and finally, my blog posts are finished. It's been a great month, and I've thoroughly enjoyed my daily random acts of wildness. From picnics and natural history museums to wildflower and bird of prey identification, it's been a hugely varied and entertaining month.

My two main highlights were probably the opposite extremes. One was exploring Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's Askham Bog nature reserve, where we had a fantastic encounter with a roe deer. The other was going on a snail safari in my back garden. For me, these sum up what 30 Days Wild is about. It's making time for nature and wildlife, whether that's something big and exciting or small and ubiquitous.

30 Days Wild may be over, but I'm planning to #StayWild. In the past I've struggled to keep on top of blog updates, and while doing daily posts has been really hard (and taken me a lot longer than I'd planned!) it's been a brilliant exercise. 30 Days Wild just goes to show, you don't need to travel far or spend all day to have a wildlife encounter worth writing about. Sometimes, the most interesting or exciting things can be found just round the corner.

If you want to see what I got up to for 30 Days Wild 2016, all of my posts are here. And if you took part in 30 Days Wild yourself, I'd love to hear what you got up to in the comments!
