Having focused most of my energies on various wildlife Facebook Groups over the past year, I'm really excited to be able to announce the re-launch of this Blog following discussions with people representing the Yarmouth Town Council and Shalfleet Parish Council.

These two local Councils want to be proactive in highlighting the wonderful flora and fauna that we are privileged to experience here on the West Wight.

One way of doing that will be by a link to this Blog and, over the coming months, the observations of myself and others will be shared here for the benefit of everyone. If you live, work or walk on the West Wight and have any interesting observations or photos to share, then please do get in touch with me via my e-mail address.

We will be looking to announce further activities as part of this initiative in due course. So, the Trail Camera will be set out again very soon to see what the local Badgers are up to, the small mammal traps and moth traps will be readied for the new season, I'll be buying some fresh batteries for the Bat Detector....and I can't wait to get the net out to see what special insects are going to turn up in 2015!

This Blog is accessible to anyone with a computer and, for those of you on Facebook, there is a West Wight Wild Group that covers the same area. We're looking forward to learning so much more about the wildlife of this special place and hope you'll be a part of it!
