One of the most powerful healing tools we have at our disposal is our ability to connect with nature's healing energy and vitality. According to scientific research compiled by Florence William, within five minutes of being in nature your body and brain start to change. She describes how the smell of pine trees can strengthen your immune system. And, birdsong increases alpha brain waves, thus stimulating feelings of calmness & improving mood. If you are stuck in the house this weekend take a few minutes to enjoy my dawn chorus meditation video. Kick off your shoes, close your eyes and be transported. Happy birdsong. xx #welovenature #protectourbirds #welovebirds #biodiversity #irishwildlife #wildatlanticwellness at Ireland (country)

Earlier this year I completed an Irish Wildlife Rehabilitation course and now work as a wildlife volunteer. If you see any wild animals in Ireland that look injured go to www.irishwildlifematters.ie to contact the nearest expert and if you are interested in training to become a volunteer wildlife rehabilitator, go to www.wri.ie #รฉire #ireland #cillmhantรกin #wicklow #irishwildlife #biodiversity #indigenous #native #druid #celtic #europe #mentalhealth #mindbodysoul #holistic #herbalist #nutritionist #irishbirds #irishmammals #irishmarinelife #irishsealife #irishfox #irishdeer #irishbadger #irishhedgehog #irishseals #wildliferehabilitation #oneplanet #volunteer #wildanimals #conservation at Cill Mhantรกin, Wicklow, Ireland

This poor little hoggie is currently in our vet receiving treatment. His breating is very bad so our vet team are doing all they can to keep him comfortable and helping him to feel better. Despite his illness he is eating away and is a happy little chappy. The nurses have all fallen for him ๐Ÿ˜. We hope he will make a full recovery ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฆ”. . . . . #kildareanimalfoundationwildlifeunit #kafwu #wildlife #irishwildlife #wildliferescue #wildlifeveterinary #wildlifeofinstagram #wildliferehab #rescuerehabrelease #hedgehogsofinstagram #hedgehogs #hog #hedgehog #spikybutt #spiky #wildlifeofireland #wildlifephotography #phptooftheday #cuteanimals #cute #animal #dublin #kildare #instahog

What a glorious day! Hope youโ€™re enjoying the sunshine wherever you are. Some views from my walk with the dogs earlier on - towards the West Cork coast, towards The Paps in Co Kerry, one of the swallows nesting in our stone outhouse and a Speckled Yellow moth, a common day-flying moth. #SunnyDay #GloriousMorning #WestCork #Ireland #landscape #MyView #MorningWalk #OutWithTheDogs #WillowWarbler #BirdSong #Moth #SkirtAndFlipFlopsDay #BlueSkyDay #DogWalk #DogsOfInstagram #RescueDogs #LurchersOfInstagram #LoveLurchers #Inspiration #Nature #LoveNature #IrishDesigner #FreshAir #peaceful #home #IrishWildlife #Swallow

Mining bee (Andrena genus) As it is/was world bee day I thought I'd share a picture I took a few weeks back which shows just how pretty bees can look. Mining bees are solitary and are often smaller than honey bees. They will lay eggs in small underground burrows and deposit some pollen as a source of food for each of their eggs so as to sustain their development into larvae. The number of eggs they lay varies depending on the amount of food in their habitat and so their populations are particularly vulnerable in area with extensive floral monocultures where there are inadequate food supplies. Of the appropriately 100 bee species, 60% are mining bees and so they are of great importance for the pollination of both wild plants and agricultural crops. At the level of an individual, mining bees are actually more efficient pollinators than honey bees again highlighting their important role as wild pollinators. #miningbee #bee #bees #worldbeeday #pollinator #pollinators #insects #entomology #zoology #insectmacro #macro_insects #urbanwildlife #urbannature #irishwildlife #sonyalpha #sonya6000 #a6000 #sonya6000club #sel55210

The Johnny Magory books are a series of childrenโ€™s books basedย on the old Irish saying: โ€œIโ€™ll tell you a story about Johnny McGoryโ€ This saying was usually finished with: โ€œWill Iย begin it.. Thatโ€™s all thatโ€™s in it!โ€ We can assure you that thereโ€™s far more to a Johnny Magory book than the old saying! Johnny Magory was developed into a character and these books reflect on life in Ireland for the author @countrylife_and_kidsbooks growing up. What are they like? Written in rhyme, these pacey books engage readers of all ages and abilities. Thereโ€™s also a free audio download of the book available for those who cannot manage on their own just yet.

Set amongst the flora and fauna of the raised bogs of Ireland; Johnny and Ruairi team up with their magical friends Lord Stag, Finn Hare, Ms Grouse and many more for a game of Rounders theyโ€™ll never forget. But in all the fun has Johnny forgotten about his workโ€ฆ And his Mammy & Daddy? Johnny Magory and the Wild Water Race. Trip along the Grand Canal and learn all about itโ€™s amazing Irish heritage.
