We explored Lower Bruckland Nature Reserve in the sunshine and it would have been peaceful without the kids! E shouted at the ducks, Izzy complained about wanting a drink, the scratchy grass, having tired legs… but that was all forgotten every time she spotted a butterfly. And there were Orange-tips, Peacocks, Speckled Woods and Brimstones fluttering about. We could hear a Tawny Owl hooting from somewhere nearby and I was very excited to see Swallows for the first time this year.
Total wild time – about 1.5 hours
