#50things Friday and Taking the Wild-Time Challenge No.34 - Track wild animals

This week Big Tot, Little Tot and I had great fun using another book we found in the shop at Osterley Park: Animals and their Tracks. Luckily for us, sunshine and showers provided the perfect opportunity to see some of the tracks on our adventures really clearly. In fact in some cases it looked just as though the creatures had stepped in wet concrete the night before!  I had dearly hoped to spot a badger and Little Tot was brimming with excitement in anticipation of tracking a 'wabbit'. However it turned out that the best we managed to spy was the rather commonplace domestic dog!   

Still, we had great fun identifying some of the bird tracks in the squelchy mud and the book proved to be a fount of knowledge on all types of animal dung too! Hilarious! Another tick off the list!


Now over to you and how you have got on with the Wild Time challenge this week and your #50things lists:


It would appear that Heart Radio have been ticking #no34 off their list too this week! Check out the video they sent us as they filmed some #‎50things fun - Here's No.34 - tracking wild animals http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ea_8raM3yAo&feature=youtu.be


I LOVE the seaside and there is nothing like a bit of jumping over waves and rock pooling to give you an appetite for fish and chips! Here is a lovely post on enjoying a day at the seaside – thank you to Vanessa who shared her #‎50things adventures with her family at Birling Gap
