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.
Some of my favourite photos
Monday, 19 January 2015
We have around 8 Roe deers in our local wood, they normal stick together in pairs or groups of four.
These two are both females and one is slightly smaller.
The weather over the past few days has very cold but sunny. The deers have been spending time out of the woods, in the field, in the sunshine.
After school we put the trail camera out for half a hour whilst taking the dogs for a walk in hope that the deers would walk in front of it. They didn't but these are the photos I took.
The deers are quite used to us out walking with the dogs.
This deer seems to have a bald patch on it's hip and a few scratches
