Pilot whale.





The last day of June and it’s been a difficult month. Things are looking up, however, and the wildlife has not disappointed.

Green hairstreak

Yesterday was a special day – saw my very first green hairstreaks! I’m not surprised it’s taken me so long to spot one, they’re tiny.

Picture is not great but I was pleased to capture an image to record the moment.



I’ve never entered a photography competition before. A year ago I wouldn’t even have considered it. But now I have and you can vote for my entry here: Royal Parks photo competition

I have also finished my latest round of editing for my novel so that’s going to be off to new readers soon. I’m so pleased and proud to have worked so hard on it and I have learned so much about my own writing in the process.

And the best part? I get to start a new story! Let the note taking begin.
