Finding my wild side with the Wildlife Trust

By Sonja Jones

Without regularly immersing ourselves in the outdoors, it’s very easy to lose touch with the essence of the natural world around us and its rhythmic cycles. When I was a child, playing and exploring outside in all weathers was at the heart of my daily existence.

I used to spend hours collecting and identifying mini-beasts, making rose petals into ‘perfume’, constructing dens, and using long stems of grass as ‘fishing rods’ in puddles. Imagination and my surroundings had no bounds. My fondness for the outdoors was nurtured by my local wildlife watch group, where we would camp out and tell stories about swamp monsters around the fire in the nature reserve; go hunting for fossils along the banks of the Humber, and pond dip for other-worldly aquatic creatures.
