At the start of the second half of 30 Days Wild a photo of Bug Mad Girl's little brother was shown on Springwatch Unsprung. Very exciting for a 6 year old boy (and the rest of us!)

On day 22 we searched the night scented stock in the garden, looking for orange tip caterpillars. We always seem to get a few caterpillars feeding on the seed pods of the plants, so we look out for butterflies laying their eggs, then the caterpillars when they get large enough to spot.

On day 28 I spent the day watching all the baby birds in the back garden.

On day 29 I cooked up a witches spell with slime mould, slugs and sulphur tuft, all in a very atmospheric Iron Age hill fort.
