Hello, I’m Andrew AKA WalkaboutLad.

Greno Wood, Sheffield, was my stomping ground as a youngster and it’s there that I developed my love for nature. I would follow my uncle Stephen around the woods looking for bird nests, badger setts, rabbit warrens, fallen deer antlers, and anthills. In fact, anything and everything would be observed in the wild or taken home to look at more closely. Perhaps keeping a frog in a suitcase under my bed was taking it a bit far. However, my mum had warned me that I would be out if any more wild animals came into the family home!

I am passionate about sharing the natural world with others and I love ‘Making Connections Between People and Nature’.
