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.

Sep 9th Mousehold Heath
Butterfly survey with friends at Mousehold Heath
September is the final month for butterfly surveys at Mousehold Heath. So this afternoon, I helped Will the warden with one and we were joined by two of our friends, David and Paul. It was a bit cloudy at times with a bit of a breeze, but we managed to get a total of 19 butterflies. This includes 8 speckled woods, 5 large whites, 3 small whites, 2 red admirals, 1 comma and one small copper. We also saw a kestrel as well as a couple of lizards.
