Knee Deep In Nature - A Young Naturalist's Blog

Postby Badger007 » Sat Feb 11, 2017 2:52 pm

Hi
I'm James Miller, a 15 year old naturalist and aspiring wildlife presenter. I make wildlife films and documentaries, take photos, and blog about the wildlife I see around me - I have a particular fascination for nocturnal creatures.
Here's my blog: http://www.kneedeepinnature.co.uk
Please have a look if you have a moment - I hope you like it!
Thanks
James :)

Thanks Megan!
Here we go - a short blog post with a video I made on my local heath for the RSPB and Climate Coalition's #showthelove campaign this February.

Please have a look if you have a moment, I want to raise awareness about the beautiful countryside close to home and the wildlife that it harbours.
Thank you,
James

Another post out today - http://www.kneedeepinnature.co.uk/barn-owl-pellets/
More scientific than usual, which may appeal to some more than others.
It's all about owl pellets; what they are, what's inside them, how to identify remains and what you can learn from them.
Back to more classic nature writing soon!
Thanks
James :)

Hi Everyone,
This is a slightly more personal blog post about why I love watching wildlife. It was intended for World Wildlife Day on the 3rd of March, but unfortunately I didn't manage to finish it in time. Here we go:

Please have a look if you have a moment! I would really appreciate it.
Thanks very much, hope you enjoy it!

Here we go, a short blog post on a pretty incredible week of watching wildlife on my local heath.
'Fireflies and Sand lizards' http://www.kneedeepinnature.co.uk/fireflies-and-sand-lizards/
3 new species I had never seen before, and all stunning in their own way.
I have lived next to this heath for 10 years, and never seen any of them here before, which just goes to show you can always be surprised!
Please have a look if you have a moment!

Hi everyone,
A totally badger blog post this week, as I've finally finished uploading videos from my trail camera, and there's been some interesting footage recorded from my badger sett - a mass excavation in fact.

I've written a blog post all about this, with some theories as to what is happening, as well as some comments on some of the more interesting individual films.

Thanks

I was lucky enough to win the Mammal Photographer of the Year competition in March, and I've just done a quick blog post on how I got the photo, meeting Simon King and collecting the prize, and the prize itself (Simon King's new book)

Here's the link if you want a look!

Sorry I haven't written any blog posts for nearly 3 weeks - I've just finished a write up of an amazing trip to the Cairngorms, and it took me ages to compile the photos and write it. I think it's length makes up for the lost weeks!
So I would be very grateful if you could have a read if you have a moment. I appreciate it is quite long, but it is mostly pictures, so don't fear!

Thanks very much

Something a little different this week - a documentary! It's only two minutes long, but there's still an interesting story in it.
Featuring some macro photography, bees, and a sinister creature that hides, waiting, in walls...

Thanks, hope you enjoy. Constructive criticism is welcome!
