As a wildlife author and environmental educator I visit many habitats from coastline to countryside. However, I often find the best opportunities for wildlife watching are on our own doorstep. While the countryside is shrinking, urban habitats (parks, gardens, wasteland etc) are becoming increasingly important as a refuge for wildlife. Here, wildlife becomes accustomed to our presence providing unique opportunities to see wildlife up close. However, this weblog is not just a record of my observation but my hope is that it will encourage you to take a closer look at your own local habitats, I am sure you will be pleasantly surprised.
