I live in the Wombat Forest, on a small bush block in Porcupine Ridge. The block is grassy dry forest, on the edge of the Central Victorian Uplands, with Mount Franklin nearby.
I have been a mad keen naturalist since I was six or so – with Gerald Durrell and David Attenborough my biggest influences as both naturalist and writer.
In 2013, I published a book called Daylesford Nature Diary: six seasons in the foothill forests. This book is a collection of nature diary articles, set to a specially devised local calendar, and illustrated beautifully throughout ( By Anne Mason). See here: daylesfordnaturediary.com
The plan is to put all of my nature writing in one place!!
I am going to amass all my photo records of flora and fauna – here and on NatureShare!
So this blog is definitely a work in progress – thanks for checking it out : )
