Well, it was inevitable. After ten days of immersing myself in wildlife almost 24/7, work and family commitments finally caught up. That hasn’t stopped me doing wild things on a daily basis but it does make it a little difficult to find the time to write about it.
Luckily I’m getting back on top of the latest mad rush so I thought I’d give you an update on Days 11 to 14 of my ’30 Days Wild’ challenge.
Yes, I know. I’m extremely lucky. Working as Wildlife Gadget Man I’m never far away from the natural world. Many days I get the opportunity to work outside. It could be in my own garden, on a reserve or in the grounds of a school. Rain or shine, those are the days I look forward to. Whether I’m alone or engaging with others, the experience of being outside in the fresh air, surrounded by the sights, sounds and smells of nature makes me feel….content….optimistic….inspired…happy.
There are lots of days though (more than you think) that I spend more time indoors than out. Usually in front of my computer or in a meeting room, but even then the subject is usually wildlife related. Luckily for me, I love technology almost as much as I love nature so whether I’m surrounded by plastic, concrete and circuit boards or trees, flowers and bird song, I’m a pretty happy chappy.
But that’s enough waffle, let’s get on with the update….
