Already loving the challenge of getting out daily for 30 minutes into the ‘wild’…
Day 1 of the challenge – supporting Tim Ridley lead his final art walk on Epsom & Ashtead Common, Epsom, Surrey http://artist-walks-epsom.blogspot.com/

For me this means into nature that surrounds me in the city of Ol’ London town.
The Re-wilding challenge comes from the awesome folk @ We Are Wilderness
Keep your eyes and ears peeled for some wild images coming from this blog in the next 28 days – gosh who knows what wild and mysterious creatures and features I will discover in my urban field trips…
I am off to look at the stars…
