Hi, I'm Rudi, i'm 8 years old and my favourite book is 'Tarka the Otter' by Henry Williamson. Its about the life of an otter named Tarka and British Wildlife. One night i was reading the book with my dad and i said that i wanted to see all the animals in the book, he said i should do it and call it the Tarka Challenge. My Tarka Challenge started on 1st January 2012. The book contains 89 birds, 54 land based animals, 120 plants and 56 aquatic organisms.

The rules are simple, i must either see each thing myself or photograph it using my trail camera. I will try and see each thing on my local patch (Ogmore River Catchment) but may need to look somewhere else in Britain.

Hard at Work

I know its been a long time since i last posted but dont worry, im still out there in the wild looking for interesting things. I have been really busy and had a break from the internet. Ive been out volunteering, doing practical conservation work at my local nature reserves. This has included doing some hard work as well as the easier jobs like counting butterflies or surveying birds. 

At the moment i am really interested in fungi and large mammals, particularly bears which i hope that i will get to see one day, in the wild.
