Thanks to everyone who joined in with the February wildlife spotting challenge.
I know lots of you kept an eye out but found it difficult to get good photos or footage of the creatures you spotted. I can sympathise with that: this challenge certainly gave me a greater appreciation of the skills of wildlife camera operators!
I spy . . .
Mags spotted foxes, squirrels and birds around her home in the English countryside, and even managed to get a couple of clear shots. Read her post here.
Emily threw herself into this challenge - she recorded a huge variety of wildlife (native Australian and introduced species) in Melbourne. She spotted 3 species of mammal, 1 species of reptile, 7 species of fish/aquatic life and a whopping 29 different species of bird! Read her post here.
Dan and I had fun tracking our sightings and spying on the birds and other visitors to the seed and nut feeders in our courtyard. We didn’t get any good shots: I used photos by far superior photographers (licensed through Creative Commons) in my post.
Abby and Kieran are the lovely friends who invited us to Wildwood in Kent. Kieran's uploaded a G+ album of the visit here.
Your mission for March
The microadventure challenge for March is . . . explore a waterway.
This might mean walking or cycling along a creek, going pond-dipping, finding a new swimming spot, revisiting a favourite beach, taking photos of plant and insect life alongside a stream, going boating on a river, making a film about a lake, or even touring your city's sewers.
Anyone can get involved, just leave me a comment here or on Twitter so I can add your adventure to the next round-up. I hope you can find ten minutes, or an afternoon, or a weekend to get involved. And remember: if it feels adventurous to you, then it’s an adventure!
Last month, the microadventure challenge was to spend time on top of a hill. Read about it!
