The Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust recently held an Urban Safari – a 7.5km guided walk around some of Nottingham’s many urban nature spots, including parks, wastelands, woods and a city farm.
It was a really enjoyable day out – it was a great opportunity to see some parts of Nottingham I probably wouldn’t have visited otherwise and to discover just how much nature there is in the city, as well as meeting some lovely people.
I wrote a piece for Wildlife in the City about the Urban Safari. If you live in or near Nottingham, read it, download the map and: Go on an Urban Safari!
Below are a few of my pictures from the day:

One of the sheep at Stonebridge City Farm, St Anns
Urban farm, St Anns
Wasteland – an important space for plants and wildlife
I rang, no one answered
The incredible view of Nottingham from Colwick Woods – this camera phone photo does not in any way do it justice
Not sure why, but I like this picture a lot
Old man’s beard – one of the plants we encountered on the Sneinton Greenway
Not really nature, but a picture I like a lot
