At Kids of the Wild This Week

It’s been a dog walking kind of week with some gorgeous bright weather. My post this week is about our new year’s day walk to an iron age hillfort, Brough Law, while there’s mention of a mountain rescue incident after our walk in the Simonside hills, Northumberland.

It’s the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend,  are you taking part? Why not make a hanging coconut bird feeder? We’re looking forward to doing the birdwatch on Sunday with some ice skating fun tomorrow.
