It has been a struggle finding time this October. Here are a few shots I've been able to muster!

What a day! I saw two jays... that was pretty exciting. I explored 3 new woodlands today. It is amazing how completely wild a place can be when so near the capital. Addington Hills is my new absolute favourite place. It is Croydon's answer to Yosemite.

I've set myself a challenge. I'm going to track down Britain's 1o most endangered species before it's too late see them in the wild where they belong.

Wish me luck!

Ok so I know I'm not the first, but I've discovered the strangest place in the UK. Dungeness in Kent is a post apocalyptic, mad max scandinavian fishing village set in the shadow of two nuclear powerstations. I'm in love. Read all about it and see my radioactive photographic journey at wildsouthlondon.wordpress.com

Some serious woodland adventures have taken place this weekend. Almost no wildlife to be seen, but plenty of fun to be had in the great outdoors all the same.

Whoops... It's been a while since I've updated this! I've been on many adventures of late. Not many animals to speak of but plenty of glorious scenery.

Take a look and tell me what you think.

Got out while the snow lasted. Check out these snowy birds in Crystal Palace Park. Egyptian geese look awful confused in winter.

Great blog, I shall be a regular reader!

It's fascinating to see what wildlife can be found even in the middle of a city
