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.

Appleton Wildlife Diary is 5 Years old today
When I started Appleton Wildlife Diary 5 years ago I never imagined that I would still be writing it 5 years later.
Over the past 5 years I have had some amazing wildlife encounters, met some inspirational people and been involved in some great projects.
I must admit sometimes it has been a chore, I love the photography but going home and writing about it is harder, but then something inspires me and my enthusiasm is back again.
I’m passionate about getting other kids interested in wildlife and showing people that fantastic wildlife can be found on your Local Patch when you step outside and look, so I’m really pleased to announce that I have written a book about UK wildlife, for kids and teenagers, to encourage interaction with nature and to hopefully inspire more people to explore their Local Patch
The publishing contracts have been signed, but it will be 2019 before the book is on sale.
I just wanted to say thank you for all the support and the advice from everyone I have met over the past 5 years.
Thank you for all the social media follows, retweets, likes, shares and comments.
