Hi everyone!! Co Fermanagh is a wonderful place and I feel really lucky that I can explore it so frequently and really connect with the landscape and also its buildings. This post is about our visit to Castle Coole and what we found there. It really is a beautiful place. I hope you think so too!

Hi everyone! This posts is about waiting, for our local buzzard. When the sky remained empty a poem formed. It was very new to me and yet another way to connect with nature, that really surprised me!

You can read the post and the poem here -

I'm not sure if any poem is a good poem but it felt really powerful to me. I hope you like it.

Thanks

Hi everyone! We've strayed from my local patch in Co. Fermanagh/N.Ireland but loved visiting RSPB and Wildlife Trusts reserves in Beds/Herts and London! The first instalment is about our visit to RSPB's 'The Lodge'. It was fantastic with lots of great species finds. Hope you like it.

Hi everyone, today marks the start of the Big Butterfly Count, so we went out to spot some and get behind the campaign too. The weather was not in our favour but we didn't fare too badly! You can read the full post here - https://youngfermanaghnaturalist.wordpr ... tterflies/

Hi everyone, this post is about my first outing with a moth trap. I was so excited and a little star struck. Such a great way to find out about what flutters in your garden at night. So fascinating. Huge thanks to Butterfly Conservation for allowing me to dabble in scientific identification!
