This has been a pretty hectic half term, so I feel I have neglected my blog somewhat... But here's a snapshot of what I've been up to when out and about attempting to wildlife-watch. It's getting autumnal out there: http://wildlifelocalpatch.blogspot.co.u ... ities.html

A new blog post from RSPB Strumpshaw Fen and Buckenham Marshes: http://wildlifelocalpatch.blogspot.co.u ... rshes.html

Lots of wigeon to be seen, as well as a water vole and siskins!

My latest post: http://wildlifelocalpatch.blogspot.co.u ... dlife.html

We've seen our first starling murmuration of the season, spotted some purple sandpipers in Sheringham and watched a peregrine in Portsmouth!

A lovely day spent around Pensthorpe last weekend, spotted several of my favourite bird species with (hopefully) a wild smew! Take a look: http://wildlifelocalpatch.blogspot.co.u ... horpe.html

My latest post after a couple of visits to Strumpshaw Fen. My favourite sightings have to be the Chinese water deer and tree creeper - I love these slightly quirky animals!
