7 Days Not Very Wild – Day 1 – 1 July 2015

7 Days not very Wild –

Trying to do something wild each day – but not easy when nature has been trashed
My idea is that sometimes even if we look for that great wild thing in nature, it can be hard to find because of all sorts of reasons mainly to do with humans destroying the world.

Having celebrated the nature we can find for 30 days, I wanted to highlight for 7 days the nature I couldn’t find, sort of as a warning that things aren’t just hunky-dory.

Day 1 – A dead Carrion Crow

Today I saw a dead Carrion Crow at the bottom of the field on the way home. I wondered how it had died. Had someone killed it? It looked perfect apart from damaged feathers on one side. Needless to say, I got a big stick and poked it to see what happened. The inside seemed to have been eaten by the maggots all over it. Then I looked up and noticed the electricity wire above it. Had it flown into the wires and died?
