Our Weekend Project: Nature Exploring with Anthisan

Baby girl has a new obsession with butterflies and bugs. Down the lane near where we live their are wide overgrown hedges which host an abundant of wildlife. I think it’s been an amazing Summer for butterflies and bees in our garden. We live close by to a watergarden as well, so we have seen a few dragonflies flying across the garden. They are so pretty. I really need to get some bug and insect cream in the cupboard ready for our adventures!

This weekend we have taken the opportunity to get out and have a look at what bugs we can find. The weather yesterday was a bit wet and muggy. So the waders and wellies came out! Anthisan were kind enough to send us a Nature Exploring Kit and the Ultimate Bugopedia. A fantastic book I may add!

Yorkshire Water: The Yorkshire Fish Pass Scheme

In my day job (when I’m not on maternity leave!) as part of my job role I’m a fishmonger. So anything to do with sustainable fishing, the environmental agency, nature and rivers I find really fascinating. In fact a few years back I studied an environmental studies course with the Open University. This was before I got into blogging.

When I heard that up in Yorkshire, the Yorkshire Water board were getting involved in fish pass schemes to help with reserve and improve fish preservation I wanted to help and share the work they are doing. I love Yorkshire, it’s a beautiful county with so much nature, picturesque views and places to explore.
