Summer is a great time to get out and visit a green space. The warm sun helps the flowers open and lots of insects buzz around looking for pollen and nectar. Long grass waves in the breeze and shadows of trees dance across the grass. If you look closely you can find green blackberries waiting to ripen and be collected in the autumn.
Don’t forget that we have loads of useful resources to help you identify the different types of wildlife you encounter, such as bumblebees, butterflies, dragonflies and wildflowers. In addition, the Seek app is free to download and the perfect tool for exploring and learning about nature.
We would love to see pictures of the nature you find whilst exploring. Tag us @backyardnatuk on Facebook, Instagram and @sembleuk on Twitter, and make sure to use #BackyardNature. We’ll be sharing the best posts on our photo wall.
