Explore the wildlife on my patch ....

Watch the wildlife LIVE in my garden


My 'patch' includes my garden and the surrounding area in semi-rural Staffordshire. Over the last four years, I have installed a variety of cameras... in nest boxes, on feeders, in mammal boxes and even in a field that adjoins my garden. These have given me unique insights into the lives of birds and animals that visit  and inspired me to do even more to attract and support the many creatures in this area. I have appeared on Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Gardeners' World, sharing my garden fauna and the projects I undertake to improve my patch for wildlife.

For a regular look at what I am doing, check out my blog and subscribe to my social networking sites via the icons above. If you just want to find out more about my patch, then take  look through the sections below. I hope my projects inspire you to do more in your patch.....

I had a truly AMAZING 2012 & 2013... find out what I got up to by clicking on the links

With over 15 nest boxes with cameras set up in my patch for a variety of species, from blue tits to kestrels, interesting activity can be seen, live on my cameras throughout the nesting season.

Watch my night cameras from around 9pm to see my nocturnal visitors.....I have cameras on a fox and a hedgehog feeding station as well as in mock burrows where you can watch mice, voles and shrews visiting.
