Slightly cheating here, because we didn’t go anywhere wild, or see any wildlife, but we did spend the evening outdoors at Burrow Farm Gardens, for an outdoor production of The Smartest Giant in Town. We had a picnic overlooking the lake and some amazing old trees, whilst waiting for the play to start. It was a fantastic evening, with the cast doing an amazing job, especially considering the distractions of excited children exploring the gardens and a fly-over by the Red Arrows. E sidled up to a little girl, put his arm around her and was rewarded with a piece of popcorn from her pot. They quickly became firm friends and ran off to play together around a huge tree. The rain held off until we got in the car to go home, at which point the sky turned a funny shade of yellow-grey and the heavens opened.
Total wild time – 2 hours
