31 Nature Reserves In 31 Days - What Happened to our plans for July?




Happy August everyone!

At the the start of July we challenged ourselves to visit 31 reserves in 31 days, however sadly, we were not able to complete the full list due to Adam having an accident and badly breaking his arm. We had planned for the last week in July to be full of exploring nature reserves but due to the joys of wearing a cast for the first time, Adam just wasn't up for it so we had to change our plans. We are hoping that once Adam has his cast removed that we can visit those reserves that we missed.

Here are the ones we did manage to visit and write about.
