I’m passionate about wildlife. In this blog I share some of my wild adventures, thoughts, photos and occasional rants. I live in the Surrey hills in the south of England. I volunteer as a dormouse monitor and a river warden, and take part in the BTO’s Garden Birdwatch survey. I’m in the process of turning my garden into a mini wildlife oasis. I’m also a bit of a data nerd, so sometimes share stats about wildlife.
In 2014 I started a challenge to see every type of British animal. Many of my posts relate to adventures I have had as part of that challenge. And in 2015 I started a monthly Photography Challenge, to push myself beyond my photographic comfort zone.
If you’re new to this blog, have a look at the Best of the Wild South page to see some of the highlights.
Comments on my blog posts are welcome, particularly if they contain ideas for new ways to improve my wildlife garden, or see new species!
PS. I blog because I love wildlife, and want to write about that. I'm really touched when people let me know they like my blog, but I don't 'do' the whole 'blog awards' thing, as I want to keep my blog focused on wildlife, rather than on the process of blogging. So I sincerely thank anyone who has considered nominating me for an award, but please be aware I don't accept them.
