I love our little Wood mouse!!!! Little mousey loves the bird feeder. Wood mice are mainly nocturnal and we usually see Mousey each night. Wood mice mainly live solitary lives and lives under our bird feeder. This Mousey never has to venture to the supermarket! #woodmouse #mice #gardening #gardenwildlifeuk #gardenwatch

You have loads of empty coconut shells and a day off.....make a delicious mix! For this we had some left over Peter and Paul peanut, mealworm mix. It was quite firm, so we added coconut oil to moisten it up and added in some seed mix, plonked it into the coconuts and put it in the fridge. We'll put them out later and see how the birds react! Tomorrow we'll be making an intriguing seed mix for the birds from random bits in our cupboards! #birdsofinsta #birds #gardenbirdsuk #gardenwildlifeuk

Newsround published this last year and it couldn't be more true! I used to work at various zoos and aquariums and kids would know loads about animals all over the world, but couldn't tell me about ones living in England. It is really disheartening. We have some amazing animals in this country. You're stuck in with nothing to do? Look outside. There is so much going on with nature at the moment. Everything is waking up. Identifying wildlife can be a super fun version of spot the difference game! I've put on some nice easy animals. See how many your child can identify. #animalgames #wildlife #reptiles #homelearning #covid_19 #stuckindoors #britishwildlife

There's a hole in my bucket, dear Laura, dear Laura.... Answer drill lots of holes in the bucket, use up that random paint you have left over and plant some random veg in it! #gardening #vegetablegardening #healthylifestyle #stuckindoors #covid_19

No food in supermarkets....tighter restrictions on lockdowns.....pupils all cancelling lessons.....future activities cancelled. The bright side is the vegetable patch is ready and raring to go. Fingers crossed it keeps getting warmer. There are some nice easy vegetables which you can grow in your house to keep you and your kids entertained during the time off! We'll be doing some research into seeing what is still available for people to get hold of and give ideas on inside and outside gardening. I do love an excuse to be stuck in the garden all day! #stuckindoors #gardening #vegetablegardening #schoolactivities #homemade #covid_19 #selfisolation #lovenature

4 chapters written! Most people know we have a book deal for our children's book 'The Adventures of Vern'. It's all going through the publishing process at the moment, so may be a while until the release date. We have a few other children picture books we're working on at the moment, but the past week I started a book aimed around 7-10yrs. First few chapters are written :D. Inspired by my adventures with Simon and Riley and my job as a field ecologist. Hopefully it'll educate, inspired and enthrall the younger generation! #bookshops #booksforchildren #bookwriter #naturereading #wildlifewriting
