Random Acts of Wildness @30DaysWild

 Wildlife Trust - day 18 of 30 days Wild

Wildlife Trust - day 18 of 30 days Wild

I'm a little bit late to the party, but better late than never. 'What party' you ask. Well, it's the Wildlife Trust 'My Wild Life' campaign, and you're all invited. The basic premise is to notice nature and do something different in your day to bring you closer to your local wildlife - a random act of wildness. This is every day in June, but I guess that if you get into the habit in June, you will do it every day forever.

My random act of wildness today is to walk through Queens Park in Chesterfield in my lunch break with my camera. I noticed a couple of days ago how comically huge the canada geese babies are. Yes, I know they are goslings but canada geese goslings doesn't sound right. They are enormous compared to the ducks and moorhen(s) (how do you say the plural of these birds?). One of the funny moments was when a moorhen snatched a piece of bread and sprinted for the lake, dodging all the ducks and geese like a rugby player.
