Welcome to my wildlife website ...

This is my personal website where I keep my wildlife diary, my sightings and my photos. Whilst it is intended for my own use other nature enthusiasts might find some of the features useful and so I willingly make the site available for all to use (but see the small print at the bottom of the page!). My wildlife watching is done mainly in Dorset and only Dorset records and locations are included in this site. If you are interested in the nature of Dorset you may like my Nature of Dorset website which you can access directly from the menu option below.
