This is my diary of the wildlife where I live in Oxfordshire, and sometimes the places I visit. I am a 18 year old young naturalist with a passion for British wildlife, especially Badgers and Hares. I have been blogging since May 2013 and you can read my old blog posts at www.appletonwildlifediary.blogspot.co.uk
Fledglings are taking over parts of the garden. With blackbirds in the back, blue tits and great tits hoping around in the hedges and the call of young sparrows coming out of next door’s roof.
The most special visitors to the garden was a brief appearance by a family of nuthatches. We rarely get nuthatches in our garden, but over the past couple of days there has been fleeting visits by an adult and two young ones
The adult birds are starting to look a little worn out
