Oldham Lockdown Museum

Week 6 (29th June – 5th July): Nature

From goats reclaiming the streets of Llandudno, to urban residents simply being able to hear the sound of bird song while traffic levels dropped, nature has played a part in many people’s experience of Spring/Summer 2020.

Last week in Oldham’s Lockdown Museum we asked you to tell us about the lockdown experiences you have had which involved nature. Have you spent more time in your local park than usual? Or have you hung a bird feeder up by your window for the first time? Have you succeeded (or failed?!) in growing something? Did you find that the act of taking a daily walk meant that you noticed the seasons changing more? We’d love to see photos of things you’ve seen in your garden or spotted on your walk. We have had LOADS of entries for the nature theme, so we’ll be adding to this gallery throughout the week.

Deadline for ‘Nature’ submissions was 9am Monday 6th July. We are happy to receive them after this but we may not be able to include them in our gallery on this page, although we will still add them to our collection for future generations.
