Appleton Wildlife Diary is 5 years old today

When I started Appleton Wildlife Diary 5 years ago I never imagined that I would still be writing it 5 years later.

Over the past 5 years I have had some amazing wildlife encounters, met some inspirational people and been involved in some great projects.

I must admit sometimes it has been a chore, I love the photography but going home and writing about it is harder, but then something inspires me and my enthusiasm is back again.

I’m passionate about getting other kids interested in wildlife and showing people that fantastic wildlife can be found on your Local Patch when you step outside and look, so I’m really pleased to announce that I have written a book about UK wildlife, for kids and teenagers, to encourage interaction with nature and to hopefully inspire more people to explore their Local Patch

The publishing contracts have been signed, but it will be 2019 before the book is on sale.

I just wanted to say thank you for all the support and the advice from everyone I have met over the past 5 years.

Thank you for all the social media follows, retweets, likes, shares and comments.

Stay Wild

    Stick with what you’re good at, Alex. Keep doing what you’re doing, and don’t let any of that fame go to your head, lol. Good luck with your book, continual good luck with the blogging and with anything else that heads your way in the future. The best naturalists are the ones that stay true to their core roots.

    All my Best Wishes,

    Well done Alex, and keep up the good work. If only the internet and blogging had existed when I was your age, I would have been able to follow my chosen career from a much earlier age.
