"If you're lucky, you get to have really good views of stuff like barn owls"
Ben keeps a diary of all the wildlife that he spots. He challenges himself to see new species: if he finds something that he doesn’t recognise, he takes a photograph so that he can look it up.
Wild spaces feed our imaginations all year round.
Discover your wild life with Essex Wildlife Trust.http://www.essexwt.org.uk/
From the peat bogs and forests storing carbon and the rivers which bring water to our homes, to the green places in our towns and cities that give people a chance to fall in love with nature – we believe that all our lives are better if they’re a bit wild.
My Wild Life is about people from all walks of life showing how nature is helping us all, everyday. Because the more people who are making nature part of their life, the bigger the voice for wildlife and wild places.
