This year I plan to bring you 30 NIGHTS wild, reporting all the action from my local badger sett in Yorkshire, every night in June. I'll be following the clan as they go about foraging, grooming, collecting bedding and cleaning out the sett. Will the badgers turn up every night? They never do on Springwatch!

A stay at home mum from Surrey. My hobbies include charity work, blogging, walking, nature photography, performing arts, crafting, swimming & dance fitness. In 2014 I started a personal project ‘LilBlu’s Thankyou’ as I wanted to give something back & bring something positive to social media. My aim is to promote kindness and celebrate those who help others including charity organisations. I try to personally organise 2-3 events a year to raise money for various charities & I try my best to partake in larger organised charity events such as 30 days wild. I would love to be a professional blogger and hope to take my project to a new level within the next few years. I am really looking forwards to taking part in 30 days wild again and I’m hoping to move it up a notch and give it something new and original.
