Alex, aged 12. This is my diary of the wildlife where I live in Oxfordshire, and sometimes the places I visit. My passion is for British wildlife, especially badgers, hares and Kingfishers.
I have now stopped blogging on this account but I will leave it running.

Here are some of my favourite photos that I have taken.

Mystery of the dead rats
The other morning we found two dead rats, one had a cut to it's neck, while the other had a cut on it's back.
I put it on twitter and some tweets came back with the suggestions of a Fox, a Cat or Samurai pygmy shrew!
I decided to put the trail camera out to see if we could find out what might have killed them. What the camera showed up was a black shadow in the bottom left corner
And the milk man
Don't tell my sister but this badger is underneath her bedroom window. It's very exciting to think that the badgers potter around outside our house at night.
