|Thanks everyone :-)|
You have all been totally awesome and I want to say thank you to lots of people for support and putting up with my daily blogging and repeated tweeting. I also wanted to put the page together to record some of the lovely comments people have made so there's a few at the bottom. If you want to make any comments as well that would be awesome as I'll have them all in one place to look back on.
There are lots of people to thank so I'm bound to miss some, sorry if I do miss you, but here goes.
Thank you to some amazing young naturalists for lots of support, comments and retweets. Most of these folks have blogs that are definately worth a look:
- Mya Bambrick - my first twitter follower :-), Toby Carter, Bird Boy Sam, Sorrel Lyall, Georgia Locock, Billy Stockwell, Elliot Montieth, Alex White, Ellis Lucas, Noah Walker, Ben Moyse, Evie Miller, Abby Miller, Josie Hewitt. Amy Robjohns The Green Naturalist
- Wildlife Trusts, RSPB, BTO, Royal Entomological Society, Butterfly Conservation Trust, BBC Springwatch, BBC wildlife Magazine, Birdlife International, Buglife.
Thanks for some great battles of bad puns:

Thanks to these folks for ID advice when I've been stuck:
Thanks for opportunities to write guest blogs:
To save this getting too long there's one last group to thank. Basically the people that inspired me to start this great adventure, well it really started with Mum and Dad taking me places and starting my love of nature. My Nana & Grandad have been very encouraging too and I've made my family very proud. I have to mention Matt Doogue, Lydia Johnson and @BBCSpringwatch with the #100days of nature as they are what gave me the idea and inspiration for the blog. Thanks guys :-)
@nerdboy386 you 'lil dude' are an absolute star! 365 days of dedication to wildlife, if every kid was like you we need not worry no more!— Matt Doogue (@MattDoogue) November 14, 2015
