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.

Hares are back
On a bright sunny day the hares came out into the field yesterday afternoon. I have only seen them a few times over the winter mainly in the wood or along the hedgerow.
At first there were two of them eating together, although every once in a while the one on the left would go up on it's hind legs and bat the other one in the face until it moved away. Then they would go back to eating.
A third one ran across the back of the field.
Last year there was a one eyed hare around which I blogged about. I am hoping it survived the winter and will be around again this year.
