Flora & Fauna in an English Country Garden

I built this web site in 2005 to keep a record of the animals, birds and flowers in my garden. It soon expanded to encompass trees, insects and even fungi. It now contains more than 500 pages of information and photographs and attracts visitors from all over the world. I hope you find it a useful resource.

I started with a tiny "Point and Shoot" camera to record my findings. Then my passion for wildlife was almost eclipsed by my passion for photography. I bought a DSLR camera to start taking better quality images and am in the process of replacing some of the original images with better ones. In this new version of the web site, I have included some photo gallery pages to showcase some of my favourite images.

I hope you enjoy the web site and that it encourages you to look closer at the wonderful wildlife around you. You may be surprised by what you find!
