I am a 14 year old, enthusiastic amateur photographer using a Canon SX60/50 HS. I also use a Bushnell trail camera and a Little Acorn trail cam to mainly film Badgers, but also what goes on around my Local patch and at our allotment. I am passionate about British Wildlife, especially showing people how easy it is to find amazing wildlife without having to travel too far away from your own home.

In 2017 I made this short film about wildlife in Oxfordshire for the report launch of the Oxfordshire State of Nature 2017.

I have been blogging about my Local Patch since May 2013, you can read my older posts on http://www.appletonwildlifediary.blogspot.co.uk

All the photographs on this blog are taken by myself unless stated otherwise. In 2015 I had a photo included in the British Wildlife Photography Awards book and I in 2016 I won U15 Mammal photographer in The Mammal Society’s annual competition.

I have been a Local Patch reporter for the BBC Wildlife magazine since February 2014 and I have appeared in magazines and local newspapers.

I was very proud to appear in The National Badger Day film called ‘Talking Badgers’  which you can watch on You Tube


I am a member of A Focus on Nature, the network for Young Nature Conservationists as well as BBOWT , The Oxon Mammal group, The Badger Trust, and Oxfordshire badger Group

I enjoy learning about nature and the environment but I am still learning! I appreciate any help and advice others can give me. I am especially keen on promoting wildlife to other young people and was involved in a Podcast for The Wildlife Trusts – Every Child Wild campaign.
