I am Rachelle. I completed a MSc in Species Identification and Survey Skills in October 2013 at the Unversity of Reading and have since been exploring my many and varied interests in the natural world, trying to pave my way for a career in Ecology/Wildlife Conservation. I am also a trainee bird ringer primarily based at Bedfont Lakes. Since I graduated I have developed a particular love of the UK coast and coastal islands, volunteering on Skokholm Island off of Pembrokeshire in 2015 and working with Little Terns on the Northumbrian coast summer 2016.
When I am not off on these adventures I live in Greater London, a place many would assume doesn’t hold much interest for some one like me. Over the past few years, however, I have discovered more and more of the hidden, and not so hidden, wildlife gems of London. It is amazing what you can find even just a few feet away from your front door.
Anyone can enjoy and discover wildlife no matter where you live, all you need is the interest and enthusiasm!
I would like to share my discoveries and adventures with you, with the hope that you can be inspired to make and share your own, not matter where you live or who you are.
