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.

Aug 23rd Mousehold Heath
Heather at Mousehold Heath
It was a hot day, but it seemed to be too hot for butterflies. I was helping Will the warden at Mousehold Heath with another butterfly survey. It wasn't as successful as our previous survey though. We only managed to count 21 individuals today. This included 3 small whites, 2 large whites, 3 green-veined whites, 1 small copper, 1 gatekeeper, 1 red admiral, 1 common blue, 1 purple hairstreak, 1 meadow brown and 1 speckled wood (though I was sure I had spotted two other speckled woods). They weren't very photogenic today, so these are the only photos I managed to take this afternoon.
