About The Animals

I am fascinated by the world of animals, domestic and wild, not just one species. I watch David Attenborough's programmes transfixed, I adore watching the herds of elephant on the African plains of Amboseli, and I am delighted when my budgies raise a new clutch.

I keep a range of animals from ducks to chinchillas. I find them all interesting and entertaining: they have brought me great pleasure for many years, and will do so for many years to come.
