To encourage more people to get out and about and experience nature, I have set up an internet page encouraging friends and family to share their own wildlife encounters.
I was ecstatic when within 5 minutes people were sharing their photographs of wildlife found in the Staffordshire area, mainly in their gardens.
Here are the photographs friends and family have shared. Thank you everyone and keep sharing!
Julie James: A bee flying into a poppy flower. A great photo taken on a mobile phone. This shows you don’t always need lots of technical gear to capture a great moment.
Ryan James: My cousin at one with nature.
Matthew Milner: A cunning fox at Cannock Chase, Staffordshire.
Amanda Bradbury: Elephant Hawk Moth found in the garden.
Susan Yeo: Grey Heron
Jill Capper: Peacock Butterfly found in the garden.
Mick James: Peacock butterfly found in the conservatory on a very hot day!
Tom Merchant: Young robin in the garden
Katie Cheadle: A squirrel dashing across the house extension roof outside my sisters bedroom window….
And then feeling very bold as my sister took this photograph.
Richard Snape: What I think is a speckled wood butterfly.
