Passionate about wildlife and the countryside
I have a passion for wildlife and conservation and record all wildlife in my local area. I am a keen walker and photographer, (please see my blog). I live in beautiful Dumfries and Galloway, SW Scotland. I am a member of the West Galloway Scottish Ornithological Club. I do moth trapping, help with bird ringing, do BTO bird and other surveys and even newt swabbing! My garden is wild and full of wonderful wildlife including Red Squirrels, Hares, Rabbits, moths, butterflies, frogs, newts, lizards, loads of insects and a large variety of birds.
Bragging rights
Despite not being very confident or having any serious qualifications, I have built up my own business from scratch.
