Welcome to my blog. My name is Sean Locke from Norwich and I am autistic. But this does not stop my passion for nature and wildlife. I am a volunteer for RSPB Strumpshaw Fen and I also help out at Mousehold Heath with surveys and I birdwatch whenever I can. Since 2011, i have been writing a wildlife diary filled with my adventures, drawings and photos. Now i have decided to go online to share with you all.

May 9th Mousehold Heath
I have been doing two butterfly surveys at Mousehold Heath today. It was very warm this afternoon, perfect conditions for these beautiful insects, though there was a bit of a breeze around which could put them off. Thankfully, Will and I managed to record 16 individuals on one side and 13 on the other. This included two green hairstreaks, a small green butterfly which blends in well with the gorse bushes that they depend on to lay their eggs. We also had one red admiral, one peacock, several orange-tips, holly blues and a few whites (small, large and green-veined). I expect that if the warm weather continues, we should see more butterflies in the next few weeks.
