WILDONLINE.BLOG

June 2017 , I posted the first blog on Wildonline . Fast forward three and a half years , over 800 posts and a few million views , the blog is still going strong. Articles in my local paper and interviews on local radio have followed.

The blog vaguely follows my wildlife photography journey over the past few years. Nothing beats being out and about with a camera in hand , watching local wildlife and I think this has become more important this year. Having a garden with visiting wildlife has been priceless during the long periods of lock down . But I have always dreamed of having my very own patch of wilderness.

And after eighteen months of negotiations, and thanks largely to the efforts of my wife Anne, at long last the dream is about to become a reality. We have negotiated a lease for a small parcel of wildflower meadow , surrounded by woodland and farmland . The small plot is in a lovely setting within the rolling hills of the Marlborough downs in North Wiltshire.

The plot extends to just one and a half acres of wildflower meadow. The real exciting part is we have permission to build a hide and two ponds. I will be joined in this new adventure by my good friend and fellow blogger / wildlife photography Graham Stewart, who lives close to the plot of land.

Our mission is to build the hide and ponds . Restore the meadow and hedgerow and create a wildlife haven. So welcome to the Wild flower meadow.

THE HIDE

Well , that’s been another hot week here at the meadow hide. Hopefully we have a small rest bite with cooler weather predicted for next week and some much needed rain as well. One of the biggest challenges during warn weather is keeping the water levels in the paddling pool high enough. As I have […]
