Explore the wildlife on my patch....

My 'patch' includes my garden and the surrounding area in semi-rural Staffordshire. Surrounded by farmland and open fields, as well as many mature trees, I am lucky enough to attract all sorts of wildlife. Over the last year, I have installed a variety of cameras ... in nest boxes, on feeders, in mammal boxes and even into the field that adjoins my garden. These have given me unique insights into the lives of the birds and animals that visit and inspired me to do even more to attract and support the amazing number of creatures that live in this area. For a regular look at what I am doing, please check out my blogs or subscribe to my twitter feed which I use every day to keep followers up to date. Or if you just want to find out more about what I am doing in my garden, then have a look through the tabs above.... I hope my projects will inspire you to do more in your patch......
