30 Days Wild – Day 28 – Wild Drawings

I was bought a pack of felt tips a little while ago and I hadn’t had a chance to use them yet. Tonight I cracked them out to draw some of my favourite wildlife creatures.

  
I have been meaning to draw for a while so it was good to finally get around to it. It was actually more fun than I thought it was going to be. The more you practice, the better you get. I definitely think my drawings get better further down the page.

30 Days Wild – Day 28 – Baking Hedgehog Cupcakes & Watching Juvenile Blue Tits

Day 28 of the ’30 Days Wild’ challenge, and today I baked “a baker’s dozen” of chocolate cupcakes and decorated them to look like hedgehogs. 

  
 
  
My other half helped me, and his looked pretty good! The decoration used chocolate flavour fondants, secured with writing icing. They tasted great too!

 

Today I also watched the juvenile blue tits visiting the bird feeders in the garden. There were two of them and two adults. The juveniles haven’t quite got the hang of landing on the feeders yet, so they cling to the side of them first before landing on the perch. One of them grabbed a seed, sat with it in its beak for a few seconds, and then purposely threw it on the floor before grabbing another. They look so cute with their grey colours, and clearly need a little longer to master the art of the bird feeders.
