At Kids of the Wild This Week

There’s been lots going on this week with some of the charities Caroline is involved with since her cancer, and I’ve, finally published a post about her remission anniversary, which has been a tough one to write. She’s had a cough so outdoor time has been fairly minimal though we did enjoy a fun session with Cubs at Clip & Climb! There are some new walks on the blog too, including this fab one in the Simonside hills, Northumberland.

 There’s still time to sign up for the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch taking place next weekend,  more info here: – how to feed garden birds all year round.
