    It all kicked off with our annual Wildside Bonanza in Barrow Park, where we played games and #17. Set up some snail races

    Kids flocked to our stream to #35 Discover what's in a pond

    Nothing like a quick dip to cool yourself down even if it decreases your chances of #30. Holding a scary beast

    Moving down to the beach to #37. Check out the crazy creatures in a rock pool/water channel

    Getting right in there to #42. Go swimming in the sea complete with nets means the shrimps don't have a chance to escape

    #8.Catch a fish with a net whilst #24. Walking barefoot
    #40. Go on a nature walk at night and discover what might be hiding out there in the dark
    I'm not sure that a sleeve is really #36. Making a home for a wild animal but nice try, that drinker moth sure looks happy there!
    Whilst we were busy trapping moths we forgot to #27. Go star gazing, but there's always next time...

Having looked across the Duddon Estuary to the lakeland fells for 3 years it was time to jump across and start working for the West Lakes team. It has been a big leap from a sand dune system but I'm getting stuck into the more practical side of "Rangering" and sharing my love of the ecological side of things with my new team. Hopefully I'll see you at our 50 things events here in Wasdale!?
