Today's 30 Days Wild challenge is to Challenge Yourself to Learn.
Following on from yesterday's nature challenge, to start noting which bees might be found in the garden by using a bee ID spotter sheet, today's blog on the daily activities from The Wildlife Trusts' Nature challenge makes a start at discovering which wild grasses grow in the garden.
A selection of grasses grows naturally around the garden - many are familiar grasses but without understanding which grasses are which, how they grow and benefit the garden wildlife, little else is known about them.

A nature journal is a useful way to record details about the grasses and small specimens will be included alongside sketches and notes. Upon close inspection of some of the grasses in the garden today, many appear to be home to a variety of tiny insects. Time to get the magnifying glass out again and start sketching! More on this later.
