Hello, and welcome to my shiny, new blog. I suppose I should introduce myself – I’m Nicki, and I have been interested in animals and wildlife since I can remember. As a child I always had pets around the house; mainly hamsters and gerbils, and more recently I have kept rats, which are such intelligent creatures that make fantastic pets. I have always liked nature and the beauty and tranquility it provides. In recent years I have started to look more deeply at the environment and start to think of the animals I see in the garden as their own little families, going about their daily business. So why am I starting this blog I hear you ask; I thought I would start a blog to share my passion of wildlife, my journey, and the photos and stories that I come across on the way. Watch this space for more blog posts soon.
