Today was quite a contrast in terms of wildlife in comparison to yesterday!
This morning I was lucky enough to spend a couple of hours shadowing a consultant ecologist who was carrying out botanical surveys in my local area. It was a really interesting experience and I am very grateful to the ecologist for letting me accompany him! As well as learning about botany and quadrat sampling, it was a great chance for me to bird some areas that I wouldn't otherwise be able to have access to.
Once all the quadrats had been sampled, I headed home via my patch, stopping to admire a beautiful wildflower meadow and enjoying the shade from the sun that the woods provided.
