30 Days Wild- Day 7: Damsel in Distress

Whilst playing outside in the garden this morning, Squiggle spotted a damselfly struggling in her paddling pool. She put her finger out to help and it quickly clambered on. Its wings were soaked and all scrunched up but she set it down in a patch of long grass, hoping they would soon dry out and recover.

We also found a ladybird lavae too, which was exciting as we had never seen one before!

As we outside outside in the garden, we also took a moment to reflect on our recent nature walk. Squiggle had asked me to find out more information about some of the wildlife we spotted so we talked a little about that. One of the things she asked during our walk was what these are…

She was very interested to discover that they are bluebells gone to seed (I didn’t realise, I perhaps should have been able to guess though based on location!!!!) Later, on our walk back from music class, Squiggle looked for more in a small patch near our house where we had seen bluebells in bloom and was very excited to spot some.
