Day 7 of 30 Days Wild was a scorcher! Having spent the morning taking part in the bioblitz at Holywells Park with Suffolk Wildlife Trust I spent the afternoon with two of my favourite little people - My nephew Ollie and his sister Milly. Our mission? To go on an adventure around the garden to discover bugs!
Today's wild antics were all about bugs. Whether it's in the wide open spaces of a local park or the confines of your garden, there's always something exciting to find. The closer you look the more you see!
A few months ago I created a Mammal Footprint Tunnel, but this was a Mammal Footprint Tunnel with a difference. My MFT had an integrated camera inside so we can see exactly what creatures leave their mark. You may have seen the lightweight, portable flat pack Mammal Footprint Tunnels initially developed at Nottingham University [...]
After watching the nesting process of a family of Blue Tits for weeks both parents mysteriously disappear leaving behind eight little chicks who are at least a week away from fledging. Can they be saved? Should I intervene? What would you do?
'30 Days Wild' Day 4 started early and when I say early I mean early! The plan for the day - Listen to the dawn chorus and watch the sunrise at RSPB Minsmere, followed by a radio interview on BBC Radio Suffolk inside the Springwatch village.

Today saw the start of a fantastic new challenge campaign from the Wildlife Trusts called '30 Days Wild'. The idea is simple - try to do something wild every day throughout the month of June. It might be easier than you think and could make you a little wilder for the rest of your life! Are you up for the challenge?!
Creating mini-wildlife photos is great fun. Find out how I got on photographing lions, tigers, giraffes, crocodiles and more in my own back yard.
The Quadrantids is the first meteor shower of the year with it's peak being around 9.30pm tonight. It's named after a now defunct constellation Quadrans Muralis as the stars from the constellation...
2014 was an extremely busy year for Wildlife Gadget Man but I tried to get up early and out in the fresh air as often as possible. Let me tell you, those early mornings were well worth it as I witnessed some truly stunning scenes and had some amazing wildlife encounters.
Yay! It's that time of year again! Twinkly lights, decorations and plenty of mince pies all around. With less than a week to go to Christmas Day it's easy to get wrapped up (sorry, no pun intended!) in all the fun and festivities but lets not forget our feathered friends over the holiday period.
