Day 15; #30DaysWild – Orchid Spotting at Moseley Bog

Moseley Bog is a nature reserve in south Birmingham, and as part of my traineeship I help to look after it! With the help of the regular volunteer group, the Friends of Moseley Bog, we had a look to see how many orchids we could find across three meadows. We found three different types of orchid (and there is possibly another type elsewhere on site!)

Southern Marsh

Common Spotted


Big Meadow
Every June the Wildlife Trusts run a campaign called 30 Days Wild. This year I shall be taking part! It is my first time doing the challenge, and I’ve been planning lots of things to do over the month. The idea is to encourage wildness, exploration and an involvement with the natural world. The daily things can be anything, from walking barefoot, to doing outdoor yoga, or growing veg to hunting out woodlice under a stone. Little things that help you reconnect with nature!
